Pumpkin Soup A La Lulu 45 Mins

It is very easy and full of good ingredients and I have it for lunch during the week. I vary it depending on what I have in the cupboard but the basic is pumpkin, onion and stock

Method

CHOPPED THE ONIONS SMALL, PEEL THE PUMPKIN AND CUT INTO SMALL CHUNKS OR THE SLICING BLADE IN A FOOD PROCESSOR. PUT THE OLIVE OIL INTO A HEAVY BASED POT PUT AT A LOW HEAT, AND PUT IN THE CHILLI SO IT CAN INFUSE INTO THE OIL FOR 5-10 MINS DEPENDING HOW HOT YOU WANT IT. REMOVE THE CHILLI AND TURN UP HEAT THROW IN THE ONIONS AND KEEP STIRRING SO THEY WON'T BURN AND SWEAT FOR ABOUT 5 MINS, ADD SPICES AND STIR IN WELL TO ONONS THEN ADD PUMPKIN STIR INTO ONIONS. ADD VEGETABLE STOCK A LITRE TURN UP HEAT AND LET IT BUBBLE FOR 3 MINS AND THEN TURN TO A SIMMERING HEAT AND LEAVE FOR 40 MINS STIRRING NOW AND THEN.
