Pumpkin with sweet potato and a good vegetable stock combines for a great soup.  This version is of a thinner style and we love our homemade stock with this soup.  To make it quick and easy substitute with good quality packaged stock.

  • 1 onion – peeled, rinsed, sliced finely
  • 1 garlic – peeled, rinsed, crushed
  • 4 cups butternut pumpkin – peeled, halved, deseeded, rinsed, diced
  • 2 cups sweet potato – peeled, rinsed, halved, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Prepare the stock.  Prepare vegetables.
  2. In a large pot on medium heat add the olive oil.
  3. Add the onion and garlic cook for 2 minutes, stir occasionally.
  4. Add the pumpkin, sweet potato and cook for another 8 minutes stir frequently.
  5. Add stock and bring to the boil on high heat.
  6. Reduce to low and simmer covered for 30 minutes.
  7. Blend soup with a food processor or blender.  Serve.
