Pumpkin cream recipe easy

The pumpkin cream recipe that I prepare (and which I present below) is from my mother. As a child I was like almost all the children in the world: I did not like almost any soup, except for this cream, it seemed delicious to me. I ate it quite often. I guess the sweet taste of the pumpkin helped me to like it.

Over time I learned how to prepare this delicious dish. It is very easy to do, in fact anyone with minimal experience in the kitchen could prepare it and it would fit.

I usually prepare pumpkin cream in large quantities to store it in the refrigerator and eat it several times throughout the week. That's right, I never leave it for more than 5 days, it starts losing properties.

    You will have seen that making pumpkin cream is easy, you need few ingredients, one of them, a vegetable broth previously prepared. It gives a lot of flavor. Some people prefer to use chicken stock, which is not bad either.

    Then you need pumpkin (obvious), and some vegetables to give it more flavor. The normal thing is to use onions, peppers and celery.

    Some leaves of coriander are also great for you.

    If you get creative, you can mix pumpkin with carrot or with any vegetable, like you will read below.

    Pd: if you are too lazy to make chicken or vegetable broth, use water, but the taste will not be the same.
