Pumpkin Soup

Among the many types of soups, this pumpkin soup is the simplest and easiest - made with a few basic ingredients usually stocked up at home and fresh pumpkin I bought for a couple of dollars at the walking distance mini market. Now that canned pumpkin puree is available, its even more convenient and easier. I still prefer rock solid pumpkin though its extra work of simmering and pureeing. Whichever it may be between both, the end result is the same - creamy soup flavored with shallots and garlic and scented with coriander leaves.

500g (1/2) pumpkin - remove skin, cubed and simmer with enough water to soften.
5 shallots - sliced
5 garlic - chopped
1 cup milk (carton/fresh milk)
3 tbsp olive oil
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Salt and pepper for taste

Pulse/process softened pumpkin for a thick puree.
Add water if needed.
Keep aside.
Heat oil and saute garlic and shallots. .
Pour in pumpkin puree and simmer over low heat.
When heated through pour milk.
Season with salt and pepper.
Stir and simmer for another two to three minutes.
Scoop into serving bowl(s) and garnish with coriander leaves.
