Spiced Summer pumpkin, butternut squash & red bell peppers soup

A tasty soup!
I had some summer pumpkin left in the fridge & I wanted to make a soup out of it. I also had some left butternut squash. I added red bell peppers ( paprika’s), an onion & a few pinches of dried red chilli flakes.
Recipe: For 8 bowls of soup
2 + 1/2 red bell peppers, washed, cleaned, pad dry on kitchen paper, cut into chunks
1 large white onion, peeled & finely diced
340 gr of summer pumpkin, peeled, seeds & threads cut out with a spoon, cut into chunks
410 gr of butternut squash, peeled, seeds & threads removed, cut into chunks
1/4 teaspoon of dried red chilli pepper flakes
1 liter gluten-free vegetable stock
soy baking margarine
1. Take a large cooking pot or steam cooker & heat up on high. Add some baking margarine & let it melt. When melted & sizzling hot, add the chopped onion & red bell peppers pieces. Stir often. Let them fry for about 3 to 5 minutes.
2.Now , add the chopped up pumpkin & butternut squash chunks. Stir well. Then, add the vegetable stock. Stir well.
3. Finally, add the dried red chilli pepper flakes. Stir. I put the lid on my steam cooker & let it sit for about 15 minutes on high heat. Then, I turn the heat off & carefully place the steam cooker on another side of the stove top. With the help of a wooden spoon, I put the valve open & let the steam slip away. When there is no steam left & it has stopped sizzling , you can open the steam lid. Now, taste your soup. It has to taste fab. Liquidize your soup.
But if you don’t have a steam cooking pot, just boil the soup until the vegetables are cooked trough, after 15 to 25 minutes, I think. Taste & liquidize as well.
4. Laddle your soup into soup bowls & serve with some fresh leaves of basil on the top.

You taste the lovely flavours of the butternut & summer pumpkin & in the end of your mouth you feel the warmth of the dried red chilli pepper flakes,…this is not too spicy just good!♥ Stay Tuned & subscribe by email!

  4. I enjoy having pumpkin soup & this is even better, with a hint of spicy-ness. Just too bad that in Asia, pumpkin soups like this is not that widely available in restaurants. I'll have to make it at home. So, thanks so much for this recipe! 🙂

  5. This is one gorgeous autumn soup. The sweet and the spice,the smoothness – it just sings autumn is here. And so very pretty.
