    Marianne in Switzerland's Note:

    With a good cooking pumpkin and some simple additions, this soup is great. If you want it more filling, you might just serve bread on the side, or butter/margarine-fried croutons (or oil-fried) Can also be served as a starter for a larger meal.

    1. 1
      Chop the onion - not too finely.
    2. 2
      Cube the pumpkin.
    3. 3
      Cube the potato.
    4. 4
      Mix up the stock.
    5. 5
      Grate the carrots and get the cream out of the fridge.
    6. 6
      Saute the onion in some olive oil or margarine or butter - for a minute or two - add the pumpkin - stir every so often - add the potato and 1/3 of the grated carrots.
    7. 7
      When things start becoming slightly soft, add the stock.
    8. 8
      Add salt and pepper. NOTE - I needed a lot of salt for this to become properly tasty, but don't put too much in now. Wait until the soup is almost finished.
    9. 9
      Let cook for about 30 minutes.
    10. 10
      Turn off the stove and use a stick mixer to roughly puree the ingredients. Personally, I prefer leaving some nice little chunks in the soup for texture.
    11. 11
      Add the cream and the remaining 2/3 of the grated carrots and the chives.
    12. 12
      Stir carefully for a little while until the carrots have become warm, but by far soft. Add salt to taste.
    13. 13
      Serve with bread or add croutons to the soup.
    14. 14
      PS - next time I make this, I think I will add 2-3 cloves of garlic and possibly a bit more onion.

      This soup is absolutely wonderful on a cold day. During my time spent in Swizerland, my house mom made this on a regular basis and it quickly became my favourite meal. I'm glad to find this recipe because the version of it I had copied was incomplete. This is perfect and oh so good. I could easily eat this every day of my life!
