Healthy Pumpkin Soup

This is the beginning of the new year. The school has reopened today. This year, one of my resolution is to be a better mum. The first step I try to do is to pay more attention to the kids, including their meals (which was one of the reasons for buying the Vita-mix).

Today I decided to try making pumpkin soup out of the machine. I modified the vegetable soup recipe to this version of healthy pumpkin soup.

Healthy Pumpkin Soup

1/4 pumpkin, steamed
1 potato, steamed
2 small sweet potatoes, steamed
1 piece celery
1 carrot (top and bottom removed)
1 slice onion
1 clove garlic
1 chicken bouillon cube
450ml hot water

1. Place all ingredients into the Vita-mix with the cooked pumpkin, potato & sweet potatoes at the bottom.
2. Run the machine on Variable speed, increasing from 1 to 10, then to High for 1 min.
3. Serve immediately.

Mood: satisfied
