Italian Pumpkin Soup
I love soups in the winter and I'm a pumpkin maniac. In Italy pumpkin is considered a vegetable so we don't eat it in cakes and sweet things, only with savoury stuff.
This is one those soups I make up when i have nothing planned and very few ingredients. Infact I had a little brown rice that my baby did't eat, and some cooked canellini which are small white beans, very tasty. Half of a nice pumpkin in the fridge. So i thought: soup! I put all ingredients together and added water, a very little salt (i like to add soy sauce at the end, because I never use stock), a quarter of a pumpkin cut into chunks and a lot of dried rosemary. I cooked it a few minutes in a pressure cooker and stirred it to melt the pumpkin, there is no need to use a blender. This soup is delicious, but I like to make new ones depending on what I got left!
I think I could be a friend of these people from New York called Freegans... LOL I found their website this morning and I must admit I'm fascinated! LOL
See their website and you'll know what I mean:
