Pumpkin soup, amaretti biscuit, sage and parmesan

A simple soup utilising the flesh and pulp removed from a pumpkin during the carving process jazzed up a bit with the addition of amaretti biscuits, fresh sage

and parmesan cheese. A real winter warmer!

 

Serves 4 as a starter

 

 

125g       Unsalted butter

400g       Onion (1)

20g         Garlic (3 cloves)

1,100g   Pumpkin flesh/pulp (from 1 large pumpkin)

1L           Milk

40g         Amaretti biscuits

12           Fresh sage leaves

60g         Parmesan

 

Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Roughly chop the onion and garlic and add to the pan. Sweat over a low heat until soft and translucent.

 

Add the pumpkin and increase the heat. Cook for approximately 5 minutes or until all the juice has evaporated and the pumpkin starts ‘roasting’.

 

Add the milk, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 - 10 minutes until all ingredients are soft. Transfer to a liquidiser and blend until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve. Season to taste with sea salt, freshly milled black pepper, freshly squeezed lemon juice and sugar.

 

Ladle into warm soup bowls and add crushed amaretti biscuits, freshly chopped sage and finely grated parmesan over the top of the soup.

 

Serve immediately.
