Classic Pumpkin Soup with Sliced Beef Biltong
- 2.4 lb pumpkin, unpeeled weight
- 1 onion, sliced (white, brown, yellow)
- 2 garlic cloves, peeled whole
- 3 cups vegetable or chicken broth, low sodium
- 1 Cup of Water
- Salt and Pepper
- Cut the pumpkin into 2.25" slices. Cut the skin off, scrape seeds out, and then cut into chunks.
- Place the pumpkin, onion, garlic, broth and water in a pot – liquid won’t cover all the pumpkin. Bring to a boil, uncovered, then reduce heat and let simmer rapidly until pumpkin is tender.
- Remove from heat and use a stick blender to blend until smooth. If you don’t have a stick blender, use a blender.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stir in cream. Never boil soup after adding cream because it will separate!
- Ladle soup into bowls, drizzle over a bit of cream, sprinkle with pepper and parsley if desired.
- Top with several tender slices of biltong—pick your favorite flavor; each one will add a different twist to your soup.
