I large or medium Pumpkin
6 cloves of garlic
6 stalks of celery
4 tablespoons of minced ginger
4 carrots minced
juice of half a lime
one large or medium onion
pepper black and white,
( dont be shy here, I believe this should be sweet and hot, so dont be afraid to add jalapeno, or crushed red pepper:
all spices are to taste)
I cut pumpkin and scooped out strings and seeds, cut into large chunks ans seasoned and baked at 400 for 45 minutes.
I used a chopper to mince all of the others ( with exception of the potatoes) and sauteed in Olive Oil with salt and pepper.
When the pumpkin was done i let cool and removed skin.
I put it in the blender and pureed. All the while I par boiled the potatoes.
Then I cooled the potatoes, skinned them and cut em small ( home-fry size) and added to the crock pot with the puree and sauteed veggies. I left it on high to finish the potatoes and went shopping for a new phone.
Came home and added the crock pot ingredients to the soup pot and mashed the potatoes .
I let it cook over a medium heat and added organic half and half.
After a little while it was ready to serve.
I garnished with fresh parsley a lime twist and a dallop of Okinos organic greek yogurt. YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN SARAS FACE WHEN SHE TASTED THIS!
Garnished with Okinos greek yogurt ( organic) and fresh Parsley and a Lime twist
