Something you don’t know about me…
My friends are always joking around saying “what if we did this or that” afraid to do it themselves instead just talk about it. I am not like that at all I will do whatever they are joking about doing or go up to strangers. Example: “You won’t go and jump on the table to sing” Of course I will. Now my friends learn not to say that stuff around me, afraid to get embarrassed because I WILL DO IT!’ I don’t get embarrassed.
Making the pumpkin Soup
- Preheat Oven at 435F (224C)
- Cutting pumpkin click here for how to and then come back
- Place half your pumpkin on a sheet tray with silk pad
- Put in oven for 45 mins to an hour
- Pull out and let rest for 10 mins
- You can peel off the skin or you can scope out with a spoon the meat of the pumpkin
- Grab a pot add the pumpkin and water and bring to a boil
- Once you have done that, pour in Vitamix (blender)
- Add your milk Blend untill smooth
- Season to taste
- Plate soup and add garnish of sour cream
You can use a stick blender
Can I add my milk to the boil?
You can, I don’t because less clean and you don’t have a chance to burn the milk or boil over
Do I have to use sour cream?
Nope you don’t you can not use it at all or you can use creme Fraiche
My pumpkin soup is bitter
You have to use sugar, since my pumpkin was ripe, and yours might not be
Why didn’t you use oil on the pumpkin?
You don’t have to coat the pumpkin with olive oil, it cooks in the oven perfectly fine without, which is great!
Do I have to use milk?
No you don’t, you can use almond, coconut, rice, soy or even hemp milk up to you! Just change it to one of those ingredients. You will have to season differenlty and might have to use sugar
How to do this for 25 to 1000 people?
If you are going to do this for 25 people, really just need a bigger pot and more pumpkin that’s truly it
The process of 1000 people
This is actually easy! The only thing I have to complain about is; Man that’s a lot of pumpkins….”
But seriously if you are going to do this for large covers of people, the method is still the same up top the only difference is that you will have more sheet pans of course!
Use a massive kettle stove, cleaning the pumpkins to a T is not worth the time, just get the majority of pumpkin meat when scooping out. If a little pumpkin skin gets in not a big deal because we will strain the soup.
- Pour all the pumpkin the kettle and add water
- Use a stick blender and blender it for 8 min.
- Once you that’s done strain it in a bucket, because you will have some pumpkin skin here. If you peeled all the skin to a T, then I’m sure you wasted a lot time. Don’t do that…
- Pour back in the kettle and add your milk and season it.
