Recipe: delicious pumpkin soup

Halloween's over, the carved pumpkins have all been thrown away and the ones that have done a great job decorating your house are ready to retire and turn into something delicious, into a pumpkin soup for example. 

Ingredients (for 4 people)
  • half a pumpkin (if you have a small pumpkin you can use the entire vegetable.)
  • 200 g fresh goat cheese 
  • 3 slices of 'filet de sax' or any other kind of ham, preferably red.
  • 3 onions
  • 3 stalks of green celery
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 garlic bulb
  • the seeds of one cardamom bulb
  • 3 litres of chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 20 g of butter
  • a bit of laurel, thyme and parsley
Let's do it!
  1. Remove the guts and the skin of the pumpkin and cut the pulp into pieces.
  2. Cut the onions, the celery and the carrots in medium large pieces.
  3. Peel the garlic.
  4. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a big stewpan.
  5. Stew all the vegetables and the uncut garlic on a medium fire.
  6. Crush the cardamum seeds and add them in the stewpan.
  7. After a few minutes you can adjust the chicken broth and the spices in a 'bouquet garni'.
  8. Let it braze for about an hour.
  9. Now remove the 'bouquet garni' and the garlic.
  10. Add the goat cheese and blend the soup.
  11. Poor the soup in a plate and sprinkle it with small pieces of ham.
Bon app├ętit!
