Warm up this winter with this delicious Quibebe (pumpkin) soup recipe.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups chopped onions
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
2 fresh chillies chopped
1 1/2 garlic cloves, diced
8 cups vegetable stock
1 pumpkin, cubed
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
In a large stockpot over medium heat, add the oil. Saute onions, tomatoes, chillies and garlic for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the vegetable stock and pumpkin. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.
Once pumpkin is tender (about 15 minutes), place soup into a blender in small batches and puree until smooth. Return soup to the pot. Stir in salt, pepper and sugar. Sprinkle parsley on top before serving.
