August and September really caught up to me, since I wasn't working as we were preparing for our wedding. So now I have so much things to do and take care of! It feels good working a lot again, I missed it. But what I missed even more is posting on my blog regularly! So I definitely have to include that in my weekly plans.
A couple of days ago I made the best pumpkin soup I ever made!! I altered my previous recipe a bit and the result was just amazing.
Finely chop the onion, and stir fry it on the vegetable oil, add a little salt (approximately 7min on medium heat). Then add the peeled pumpkin chopped into cubes and fry until the pumpkin starts turning a bit brown, then add water (add so much water all of the pumpkin cubes are covered), cinnamon, and turmeric. Cook for about 30 minutes.
Cut the asparagus into 2-3cm long pieces and saute them.
Set the soup aside and blend it until smooth, then add the asparagus and set on the stove just until you bring it to a boil.
For the croutons take the butter and melt it in a frying pan. Cut the toast into cubes and put it onto the hot butter. Remember to stir it well, so the butter doesn't get soaked up in only some of the croutons. Fry until crispy brown.
Next you fry the onion. I took a small pan approximately 5cm height and filled it with vegetable oil. I chopped the onion into small pieces and dipped it in some salted flour, then I put it into the hot oil and fried it until brown and crispy (5-7 minutes). To my bowl I also added 1 tbsp sour cream, 1tsp pumpkin oil, and a handful of pumpkin seeds.
And that's it! Definitely my go-to recipe this fall.
Let me know if you decide to try it out, I'd love to read some feedback!
Have a wonderful weekend guys, talk soon!
