PG's Pumpkin Soup


Pg's Pumpkin Soup:

Take a medium sized pumpkin. Peel it, dice it. Do the same for 1/2 a medium sweet potato (your ratio should be about 1 piece of sweet tattie to 10 of pumpkin)

Finely slice 1 leek.

Sweat everything off in a large pot, with a bit of olive oil. When nicely coated, and the leek is glassy, add chicken stock.. as much chicken stock as it takes to cover the veggies.

Cook until the pumpkin is falling apart.

Whizz with a hand blender until completely smooth.

Add fresh parsley and dill, and serve with a goodly dollop of cream and crusty bread.

(Furry likes to add about 250g of pouring cream after the whizzing, rather than serve it with cream, but it's pretty much as you like it)

Whole shebang should take about an hour and it freezes up a treat!!!
