Pumpkin — a remarkably beautiful ornamental plant, and they are trying to eat it, in my opinion, solely out of greed: well, it’s a shame to throw out a berry weighing half a ton.
This year, a certain Ron Wallace in Rhode Island grew a pumpkin weighing 2.009 pounds, setting a new world record.
That must have been the Cinderella carriage.
One of the traditional (and it is worth noting a few) The culinary applications of the pumpkin have served for a century pumpkin soup, The recipe is uncomplicated, like the plant itself, but over the years it has been overgrown with numerous branches and additions so that it will not be so boring. The fun in the usual pumpkin soup is only color, the rest is often completely inexpressive, and the best culinary minds have long struggled with this problem, trying to portray something enchanting from the pumpkin.
Some get it — for example, spicy and spicy pumpkin soup for «late autumn sometimes«.
Take a small, bright orange and ripe pumpkin. Cut it in half, spoon, select the seeds and any other trash from the middle.
Preheat the oven to 180ºС, cover the baking sheet with foil and grease a little, put the pumpkin in a cut down and bake for 45 minutes or until it is completely soft. Let cool slightly, cut into chunks and cut off the peel.
It will be such a basic preparation for the soup.
It should turn out about 1300-1500 g, the rest can be frozen until the best days.
Now take a large saucepan with a thick bottom, put it on the fire and heat in it a decent piece of butter.
Finely chop a pair of onions and even smaller a pair of garlic cloves. As the oil stops foaming, pass the onion and garlic, to a light blush.
Do not get carried away for about 5 minutes. Fry the onions and spices together — crushed coriander seeds and black pepper, flakes of red pepper — all in half a spoonful, at the end drop a couple of teaspoons of curry powder.
After that, it will take about another liter of chicken or vegetable broth, depending on the bloodiness of the concept.
Pour the broth in the same pan, stir and put your pumpkin pieces.
Let cook over low heat for about 15 minutes.
In past years, the soup would be rubbed through a sieve, and then it would be punched through a small sieve.
Under the conditions of technogenic dominance, it is easier to pour the soup in portions into a blender and turn it up to smoothness.
Although a fine sieve still does not hurt, only for the benefit.
So, it turned out a nice orange mashed potatoes, as you want to believe.
Return it to the pan and to the fire, and stir 3-4 tablespoons of brown sugar in the soup.
Now pour a couple of cups of milk with a slow stream with constant stirring so that it spreads well and does not run away.
For the satiety, smoothness and beauty of pumpkin soup, they also add fatty pastry cream, which is 33% minimum. About a cup. You can simply add and stir them, and you can release from the bag with a beautiful spiral when serving already in the soup cup.
The green curry leaf or a pair of green and red fresh chilli peppers will greatly decorate the soup.
Themselves are asked in pumpkin soup croutons You can, as in the famous film, buy for 8 euros a bag of ready-made French, with herbs and garlic, for example.
And you can not spend money and cut half-cubic centimeter cubes, in a bowl, melt a couple of tablespoons of butter, grind a clove of garlic there with salt, lightly beat and roll the bread cubes in this mixture. And then dry them in a dry frying pan or in the oven.
It will be very nice.
If you hope to feed men with this soup, then you can put more spices, and if you have children, then less. Both undertakings are not doomed to success at all, but the soup looks elegant and dietary, so you can count on women.
