Let's Make Magic in the Kitchen!
Step 1: Build the Flavour Base
In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-low heat. Sauté your finely chopped onion until it becomes translucent and starts singing sweet tunes to you. Throw in the celery, garlic, cumin, and cinnamon, stirring the pot for about 30 seconds. It should smell like a spice market by now!
Step 2: The Pumpkin’s Dive
Pour in the vegetable stock and introduce the butternut pumpkin to its flavourful bath. Bring the pot to a roaring boil, then simmer it down to medium-low. Cover and let it cook for about 20 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender enough to melt your heart.
Step 3: Spice Infused Oil Extravaganza
Meanwhile, as the soup is simmering, let’s create some magic oil! In a large fry pan, add an extra tablespoon of olive oil along with the paprika, ground coriander, extra cumin, and sea salt. Pan-fry these spices, stirring occasionally for 5-8 minutes or until your kitchen smells like heaven and the spices turn golden.
Step 4: Garnish and Serve
Pour your soup into your favourite bowl, dollop a spoonful of sour cream, sprinkle chopped coriander, and for the pièce de résistance, top it all off with our Harvest Box Crispy Chickpea Chips!
There you have it! A bowl of comforting Pumpkin Soup elevated to gastronomic heights by Harvest Box’s Crispy Chickpea Chips. Perfect for those cozy nights, don't you think?
