Pumpkin cream soup with watercress

Pumpkin cream soup with watercress

Cut the vegetables into suitable pieces (leek slices, diced potatoes, pumpkin as well, larger cubes, sliced ​​carrots, peppers into suitable pieces) Choose the watercress and wash it.

Put olive oil in a pot and add the leeks - let it harden a little (just soften), add the rest of the vegetables (add only a part of the watercress), let it soften a little for 5 minutes and form a flavor , then pour boiling water. The water should only cover the vegetables, not too much. Add what you need after the bird. Add salt and simmer until the vegetables are well cooked. Mix the soup until it becomes cream, then put it back on the fire, adding the remaining watercress and pepper. Let it boil until the watercress leaves are soaked (but remain whole).

At the end we add a little more olive oil. Serve with bread croutons.


Many people don't like pumpkin, but after this soup you will change your mind. Another thing worth noting is that the pumpkin is very filling, so a portion of pumpkin soup will be enough to quickly satiate you and drive away hunger for a few hours.

With Justin's diversification, I rediscovered my love for clean, simple and healthy food. I like to spend time with Justin and I feel that I can still have a little child with him.

I like nature walks, gardening and I love horses. I have been my great love since childhood.

Baked pumpkin cream soup with flavored croutons

Baked pumpkin cream soup with flavored croutons. An autumn recipe with pumpkin pie or baked pumpkin, aromatic and beautifully colored. A simple cream soup served with garlic croutons and drizzled with pumpkin oil. I assure you that it will be to the children's taste!

I do it every fall pumpkin cream soup because it's one of my daughter's favorites. Whether simple soup with potatoes, pumpkin and sour cream, or the exotic one with coconut and curry spices. Both are great! In addition, pumpkin cream soups are very quick to cook in 30-40 minutes.

I also talked about cream soups, about the & # 8222suitable & # 8221 consistency that they must have: something between soup and puree. The boundary line is very fine. After all, you can make them the way you like them: thinner or thicker. The thickener used most often is the potato, but lately they make cream soups with rice. These seem to be finer and silkier than those with potatoes. See here a pumpkin cream soup with rice.

The vegetables that are put in the pumpkin cream soup are not many, in order not to distort its taste and aroma: onion, a little garlic, possibly carrot (it matches the color), possibly sweet potato. A special flavor is given by the butter in which they are hardened. Also, the taste and aroma of autumn pumpkin can be intensified by baking it beforehand, either in large pieces (lasts longer) or grated on a large grater, as I did.

At the end I like to put sweet cream for whipped cream (natural, with at least 30% fat). It is not mandatory but it is recommended :).

We also like plain baked pumpkin or sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon & # 8211 see the recipe here.

I give you the quantities for 6-8 servings of baked pumpkin soup with crispy croutons.

Pumpkin cream soup with browned ham on breadsticks

Pumpkin cream soup with croutons and fried bacon

Ania really likes eating pumpkin and sweet potatoes. She's been eating it since she was a little girl. Because I haven't made pumpkin puree for a long time (sweet potatoes are eaten almost weekly), I decided to try a cream soup recipe, in which to integrate some other vegetables, which are not preferred with their simple taste and natural. And so as not to risk anything, I said to involve in this scene some fried bacon croutons, both adored by chicken, in order to add another texture and be more convincing in my proposal.

Chop all the vegetables. Fry the onion and garlic, then add the carrot, celery and kapia, and finally the pumpkin. It goes well with salt and pepper. Pour enough water to cover them and let it boil under the lid. Blend the vegetables separately and then add from the water in which they boiled to the desired consistency. Add the cream and mix until smooth.

Cut the bacon into cubes and fry. Add the diced bread and a little salt to the remaining oil.

When serving, in the bowl in which the cream soup is placed, sprinkle cubes of bacon and croutons on top.

My attempt to sell this cream soup to dandelion, however, I must admit that it failed miserably. After a few tablespoons of the mixture, Ania made me a final offer, without the right to appeal:

-Mom, you eat this orange soup and I eat ham and bread. Good?

And, look, I chose, unintentionally, a pot of cream soup, but without modesty, I describe it as delicious.
