Pumpkin & Carrot Soup
Makes: 4 servings
1kg pumpkin (any soup variety), cubed & roasted or unroasted
3 large carrots
1 tsp. cumin seeds
Half clove of garlic
Salt & pepper to taste
Piece of ginger (to liking)
1L of water or vegetable stock
1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes (for garnish)
1/2 cup toasted pepitas/hulled pumpkin seeds (for garnish)
Add all ingredients to your BioChef High Powered Blender.
Blend on highest setting for 8 minutes or until jug is hot to the touch. Alternatively use pre-set Soup program if applicable to your blender.
Note: this method only applies to High Powered Blenders. The incredible power of the motor and high RPM creates friction heat, producing a steaming hot soup.
Brown pumpkin, carrot, cumin and garlic (chopped) in a medium saucepan with 1/2 cup of olive oil. Add liquid and salt & pepper and simmer for 10-15 minutes until pumpkin has softened. Cool for 10 minutes, and add to your blender to pulverize.
