Pumpkin Garlic Soup


Not at all a soup person I am. But when soup is one of the items for Western set meals, waste not is the policy. And after settling down with my other half, I won't say soups have become a favorite just to please him. Still why not when I make for him especially for dinner paired with toast. After all pumpkin soup is truly so yum. Simply with a couple of ingredients like the previous simple pumpkin soup or this one, also considered simple. That's it and while you are still here, perhaps the  Pumpkin Cake and Pumpkin And Salted Fish Curry may be of interest as well.


Ingredients
1/4 pumpkin - remove skin and seeds and cubed
4 shallots - chopped
4 garlic - chopped
1/2 cup milk/cream
3 tbsp olive oil
Pepper and salt for taste 
Method
Simmer pumpkin with two cups of water till soft and tender.
Blend/process for a thick puree.
Meanwhile, fry garlic and shallots in olive oil till crispy.
Pour in puree, milk/cream and season with pepper and salt.
(Note: add more water if the soup is too thick for you)
Simmer till heated through.
Serve with toasted bread slices.
