Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Onion (medium)
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 50 oz Hokkaido pumpkin (without seeds and peel) 1.5kg
  • 3 Potatoes (medium)
  • 50 fl oz Veggie broth 1,5l
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  • Peel and chop the onion and garlic into small pieces. Peel and dice the potatoes. 
  • Peel and chop the Hokkaido pumpkin. For easy reference watch our short video. In short, you need a sharp and large knife to first cut it half. Move slowly and cautiously, so that your knife won't slip. When ready, use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Now, turn the pumpkin half upside down so that it firmly stays in one place and use a sharp knife to cut small and thin peels off the pumpkin.
  • Heat a saucepan on medium heat until olive oil is shimmering. Add the chopped onion and garlic coat it with the oil and spread evenly. Stir occasionally (For WFPB diet - cook them in veggie broth)
  • Once onion is tender but still white, pour the veggie broth onto it. Stir a couple of times. 
  • Add diced pumpkin and potatoes. Cook them for approx. 20-30 minutes. The smaller the diced pumpkins/potatoes are the shorter the cooking time. Both have to be tender to be ready. 
  • Use a hand blender and puree them thoroughly. Now add the salt and pepper to taste. Ready to serve it.
