Pumpkin and red onion soup with thyme and rosemary flowers








Ingredients:

1 red onion
2 tbsp olive oil
2 kg pumpkin flesh
1 celery stick with leaves
2 l vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to taste
A few sprigs of thyme
A few rosemary flowers

Instructions

A nice soup for the weekend, simple, just chop a red onion and sauté with olive oil. Add cut and peeled pumpkin, a celery stalk with leaves and some vegetable stock. When the vegetables are cooked blend the soup, adjust with salt and pepper and then decorate with fresh thyme and rosemary flowers (these can be eaten and will give the soup a lovely rosemary flavor without any of the woody leaves!).

Happy Weekend to all!





With this recipe I take part in the  The Soup Kitchen Monthly Blogger Event, this month's theme is Olympic Soup.

  7. Pumpkin soup always looks so beautiful. Of course, I'm partial to pumpkin. I don't think I've ever seen it look so creamy. How did you do that? Gorgeous!

  14. Hi Alessandra, this looks really healthy and delectable. Unfortunately, in my neck of the woods, pumpkins are scarce. There is squash in abundance, though. Can I use that instead?

  16. How tasty! I've never used (or seen) the flowers for thyme or rosemary, but love how this turned out. I'm featuring this post in today's Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and I love the inspiration I get from your food…
