Autumn and Halloween at the table translates into: pumpkin soup
Pumpkin is a fruit, extremely versatile in the kitchen and for which just a few ingredients are enough to transform it into a first course with a unique flavor. The velvety is a pumpkin-based first course perfect to warm the palates on the coldest evenings. The important thing, in our opinion, is to add tomato puree to the preparation.
Halloween is approaching, celebrate it also at the table with this “frighteningly” tasty first course.
Ingredients for 6 people:
450 g Pumpkin
400 ml Tomato puree
500 ml Vegetable broth
