Its pumpkin season, just a reminder if you forgot.
Im not the biggest pumpkin fan, but somehow I really enjoy a good pumpkin soup.
This recipe comes from the fall issue's My happy Dish winner Ewa Ostoja-Helczynska.
Its creamy, sweet and I love the addition of the chanterelles.
Pumpkin Soup with Chanterelles
3 cloves garlic
2 Lb pumpkin flesh (without grains and filaments)
3 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups vegetable stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon Thyme
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
a pinch of grated nutmeg
20 chanterelles, cleaned and halved
1 tablespoon olive oil
Chop the garlic and shallots.
Fry in a tablespoon of olive oil.
Add the Pumpkin cut into large dice and cover with stock.
Cook for about 20 min.
Add the herbs and spices.
Once the pumpkin is soft, add to a blander and whizz until smoothe.
Pass through a colander.
Pour back into the pot and add cream.
Bring to a boil.
Saute the chanterelles and thyme in the olive oil.
Divide them in four bowls.
Fill each bowl with hot soup.
