Pumpkin, squash, pumpkin

Fall has arrived and  surprised us again with all these beautiful colors. Every Saturday I visit local market and enjoy the variety of vegetables and fruits, and this month, the color, shapes, sizes of pumpkins and squashes. In my country (Croatia, Europe)  Halloween is not part of the tradition, but we love squashes and make meals, soup, cakes and  keep them as decoration as well.

Delicious pumpkin soup

This delicious cream soup is very easy to make, but one of the best you'll ever taste. Read the recipe and enjoy!

Delicious, yet simple pumpkin soup 

Ingredients (for four person):

 - 750 g of pumpkin 
- 250 g of potato
- onion (garlic optionally)
- spoon of oil
- slice or two of old bread (optionally)


Peel and chop the onion, peel and dice the potato, peel and dice the pumpkin flesh. Heat the oil in the saucepan and add onion, stir a little bit and add potato. Fry it for a couple of minute, add about 1 l of water and add pumpkin (optionally, add a clove of garlic). Bring it to boil, add salt, reduce heat and cover the saucepan. Simmer about 20 minutes. When the pumpkin is cooked well, blend everything with the immersion blender or kitchen tool.

Dice two  slices of bread and toast them in the pan.

Serve soup with the cream and toasted bread. Enjoy!
