There’s nothing spooky about this pumpkin soup. Growing up in a Jamaican household we don’t really do much celebrating for Halloween, but while the rest of the country is carving pumpkins, we’re cooking pumpkin soup. So I’m going to let you in and show you this secret winter recipe. It’s time to get rid of all that trick or treat chocolate and let the flava into your life!
Soup is a staple of any good Carribean kitchen, we can *Jamaican accent* ‘tek anyting an mek soup’. So over the winter months, I’m going to share a variety of different Flavas, hit that follow button and go check out my Instagram, so you don’t miss out. But we’re going to start with one that’s super easy to make and tastes amazing!
- 400g Pumpkin
- 40g Coconut Milk
- A Clove of Garlic
- A Finger Chilli (for some spice!)
- A Stock Cube
- Dried Thyme
- Black Pepper
- Peel, dice and boil your pumpkin for 10-15 minutes
- Drain the water from your pan and add your coconut milk, garlic, chilli and stock cube.
- Blend the contents of your pan until it’s smooth, like an 80’s jazz band
- Add your stock cube, thyme and black pepper
- Let it simmer for 10 minutes, stirring it occasionally
- Serve and enjoy the flava
