Time for Soup

It's cold...must be time for soup! Here is a quick and easy recipe for a delicious soup, from Healthy Food Fast. It is a lower fat version of a cream-based soup.


250g pumpkin, peeled and cut into small chunks
Half head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 zucchini, chopped
1 large onion, diced
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
6 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup low-fat evaporated milk

Combine pumpkin, cauliflower, zucchini, onion, potato and stock in a large pot. Cover and cook over gentle heat for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat and puree in a blender until smooth. Stir through milk. Serves 6.

Hint: If you do not have a blender, push soup through a sieve.

Variation: This soup can be made using 1 1/2 kg of any chopped vegetables. Try sweet corn and sweet potato and 5 minutes before the end of cooking throw in a few outside lettuce leaves and a handful of parley or mint, then puree.

These are such soupy days aren't they. CCCCCold.
My kids would never eat this either (what is it with kids and soup??) but I might make some (with vegie stock) for the farmer boy's lunch next week. Thanks for the recipe.
