Pumpkin Soup

Ingredients :

1kg pumpkin (kent or jap)
300gr fresh tomatoes or a 440gr tin of crushed
1 onion

This is a nice quick soup, throw it all in the pot cook it up and whizz it!.

Peel and roughly chop the onion. Peel and chop the pumpkin and cut up tomatoes (or add in your tin of tomatoes, cover it all with water and put it on the heat, bring it to the boil then simmer it for 20 minutes or until the pumpkin is falling apart.

To season I use knorr chicken seasoning and salt and pepper, always season a little at a time so you don't over do it.

Let your soup cool for 1/2 an hour then whizz it either with a hand held mixer or put it in the blender, check your seasing one more time and then it is ready to serve.

I package all my soups into one cup serves and freeze them, an average serve is 1 1/2 - 2 cups.
