wowzers thanks! you know EVERY cafe/restaurant always has pumpkin soup on the menu because its sort of like a peoples favourite. I  will always order a soup when I'm out if its NOT pumpkin soup. This one is so easy and tasty, why would you eat it when you go out?

I agree CP, I want something different when I eat out.

Pumpkin Soup 2

Ingredients:
2 medium onions, quartered
4 bacon rashers, chopped roughly
1 garlic clove
20g olive oil or butter
3 cups pumpkin, diced (approx 850g)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3 tsp TM vegetable stock
3 cups water
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper
pinch cayenne pepper
100g evaporated milk

Method:
Chop onions, garlic and bacon in TM bowl for 2 seconds, Speed 5.
Add oil or butter. Saute on 3 minutes, 100 degrees, Speed 1.
Add the rest of the ingredients except for evaporated milk.
Set for 15 minutes, 100 degrees, Speed 1.
Add evaporated milk, and then blend 15-20 seconds by slowly going from  Speed 1 - 9.

Tip: this is not a thick soup but was the right consistency for my taste, if you prefer it thicker add 'a bit' less water.

I've been sick at home in bed for four days and this sounds perfect for my lunch. Could I substitute the evaporated milk and cayenne pepper for something as I have none and don't want to go to the shops?

Thanks,

Charde

I hope you start feeling better soon Chardie.  Just use ordinary milk in place of the evaporated milk, perhaps add a bit of cream as well and I'd just leave the cayenne pepper out or add some chilli instead.

I wrote this down in my notebook a couple of weeks ago for subbing evap milk:

1 cup of powdered milk + 3/4 cup water = 1 can evap milk

Hi, I'm Sharima - long time looker, second time logger (logging in that is)
I just wanted to say I love, love, love this soup!
I've just made it for dinner the second time in as many weeks.
Now, I do like a pumpkin soup but am usually a little, eh-it's alright but the cayenne just does it for me!!
So thanks for the recipe!!

I made this today, 20/7/2016 and was it a hit, just love the taste of bacon.  I did not use the cayenne pepper, and cut back the water to 2 1/2 cups,  then also cooked 15 min varoma, MC out, before blitzing.  Yum
