How To Make The Best Pumpkin Soup and Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Method Peel and chop pumpkin (or canned) and potatoes into same size pieces ,smaller the pieces will reduce cooking time ,include onions ,spices ,salt etc. Boil time approx 20mins , just check for tenderness as you would boiling potatoes.

Drainand SAVE juice (stock). Set aside Mash using hand masher , food processor , or hand held mixer until pulpy and well mashed . You may need to do this in batches depending on chosen method.

In a separate sized pot add 100 grams of butter on medium heat to melt , as it melts quickly throw in 3 tablespoons of flour , as this turns into a paste add one cup of milk to make a sauce ( roux).

(If you want to make this into Thai Pumpkin Soup ,add Spicy Thai Curry paste now) Recipe below.

Watch the heat you may need to adjust down. The pumpkin stock that you had set aside now add to the white sauce ,blend in. Add pumpkin puree and coconut milk ( one can) Blend well. All thats required now is to heat through , eat and enjoy!

Just a wee tip here ,if you feel you have too much pumpkin puree , take some aside and freeze ( any plastic container ,if no freezer bags) Do this before adding the coconut milk or the sauce as anything with milk in it does not freeze well ( separates an goes funny).
