Leftover pumpkins from Hallow'een? Here's my pumpkin soup.
1 pumpkin ( around 3lb of flesh once peeled and chopped), 1 leek ( 1/2lb) and 1 potato ( peeled weight, 1/2lb), Chop the lot and bung in a humungous pan, crumble in 2 vegetable stock cubes and 1/2tsp red curry paste. Pour 1 1/2 litres hot water over and fit with a tight lid. Bubble for 1/2 hour and then blitz until smooth.
This serves 6 good sized bowls at 75kcals a bowl.
I also cook down the flesh from the rest of my Hallow'een pumpkins. Simply dice up and put in a covered microwave proof bowl and cook 10 minutes on high, stir, then put back in for another 10 minutes. Stir again and check to see if it needs a little longer. Once done, drain and mash. Put in tubs and freeze. I had 4 pumpkins this year and each weighed around 3lb peeled weight of flesh. I got 6 tubs once cooked which will make soups, pies, etc... over the next few months. When you cook the flesh down DO NOT ADD WATER OR ANYTHING ELSE, it creates its own juice as it cooks and needs draining after cooking to be able to tub up and freeze.
