Good recipe

After a very chilly Winter, I was making a lot of pumpkin soup for the family and I thought I would share this recipe as it's pretty easy and you can't really go wrong! Hope you try it out and feel free to leave some comments :)

Ingredients : Large cooking pot, wooden spoon, blender rod, half a pumpkin (Diced), 2 or 3 carrots (sliced), 1 onion (finely diced), 1 tbsp plain flour, 1 tbsp butter, 1 tsp chicken stock, 3/4 of a cup milk. I usually also put in one zucchini (sliced) except we had none :\    

Melt the butter on a low heat and then add the onions, cook until partially translucent.
Make sure to  get all the onion covered in the butter. 

Add in all the pumpkin and mix.

Add in all the carrot and mix.

Put the lid on and let the vegetables soften for about 5 minutes.
Stir occasionally so as not to let anything stick to the pot. 

Take the pot off the heat and add in the flour.

Mix in the flour until you can't see any white.

Dissolve 1 tsp of chicken stock into 2 cups of water.

try to submerge most of the vegetable matter under the stock.

Put back onto the heat and bring to the boil.

Once boiling, know the temperature down and
let it simmer for 20 minutes or until  soft .
After 20 minutes, let it cool down for about 5 minutes and
then using your blending rod, blend it all together.

Add milk if you wish and blend until smooth.
TA DAA! that's it, hope you one day try this out, because it is delish! Perfect for those cold days :)
