Finally!!! My “friend” the Pumpkin is back!
It means two things: it is Autumn and I can restart cooking soups! Both things make me very happy!
Making a soup is quite easy: you put all your ingredients inside a pot with water and you cook it. The “game” gets a bit more difficult when you want to make a vegetable cream because then ‘colours matter’!
If you mix a lot of vegetables together and after you mix them you need to be careful to obtain a tempting colour like a nice orange, an intense green or a delicate white…basically you should think “Pantone” even when you cook a simple soup!
So I took my Pantone colour guide and I decided to cook an orange soup without cooking just a pumpkin soup.
A big piece of Pumpkin
A glass of Orange Lentils
1 small Onion
A piece of Savoy Cabbage
1 Vegetable stock cube
Some creamy Blue Cheese – I used Saint Agur but you can use Gorgonzola or any other blue cheese.
Cut everything in pieces, put it all inside a pot, and add enough water to cover all the ingredients.
Let it cook until the vegetables are soft.
Use a mixer to turn your soup into a smooth cream. Add a big spoon or a piece of blue cheese and enjoy your first soup of the season!
