Gordon Ramsays Roasted Pumpkin Soup Recipe
Pumpkin is also somewhat sweeter than many other squashes, which allows it to be used in both sweet and savory dishes.
I watched Gordon cooked this dish for his kids on a TV show he was featured. His adorable kids loved it.
This copycat recipe is my take on it. Roast the pumpkin chunks before adding for an extra layer of flavor.
Serves 4 6
1 large onion, sliced
1 and lb. pumpkin peeled and cut into chunks
1 lb potatoes, diced or sliced
2 and cups vegetable stock
tsp freshly grated nutmeg to taste
1 tsp chopped fresh or ground dried tarragon to taste
2 and cups milk, or half and half for a richer soup
2 tsp lemon juice to taste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1) Heat the oil and butter in a heavy saucepan and saut the onion for 4 5 minutes over medium-low heat until soft but not browned, stirring frequently.
2) Add the pumpkin and potatoes, stir well, cover and sweat over low heat for about 10 minutes until the vegetables are almost tender, stirring occasionally to keep from sticking or browning.
3) Stir in the stock, nutmeg, tarragon, lemon juice and seasoning. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes until the vegetables are completely tender.
4) Allow to cool slightly, then pour into a food processor or blender or use a reliable hand blender and process until smooth.
5) Return to saucepan and add milk. Heat gently and taste, adding extra lemon juice or seasonings to your taste.
6) Serve piping hot with a dollop of butter, sour cream, yoghurt, or crme frache and a sprinkling of chives, green onions or fresh parsley as a garnish.
What is Creme Fraiche? Is a thickened cream with a slightly tangy, nutty
flavor and velvety, rich texture.
7) Light garlic buttered croutons are also a welcome garnish, but go easy on the garlic as it can overpower the delicate flavor of the soup.
COOKING TIPS for Roasted Pumpkin Soup Gordon Ramsay
How to Roast Pumpkin in the Oven?
Step 1. Preheat oven to 200C /180C fan-forced. Line two large baking trays with baking paper. Place pumpkin and garlic in a bowl. Add oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix or toss to coat.
Step 2. Arrange pumpkin mixture, in a single layer, on prepared tray. Bake for 40 minutes or until pumpkin is golden and tender.
How to Roast Pumpkin without Oven?
Roasting on the Stove. Warm a heavy-bottomed pan on medium-high to high heat. Do not use a nonstick pan, as this will stop pumpkin from browning.
Choose a wide-bottomed pan to cook more pumpkin at once. Preferably, it should have low edges, as high sides will capture the steam from the pumpkin as they cook, leading to a mushy texture.
Add a thin layer of coconut oil to the pan, coating the entire bottom. When the coconut oil is smoking, add the pumpkin.
Cook in batches if you are roasting many pumpkins. Overcrowding can lead to poor caramelization and mushy vegetables, so leave a little bit of space between the pumpkins for best results.
Slowly stir the pumpkin once or twice during roasting, but leave them mostly undisturbed to help them roast perfectly.
