About this recipe:Pumpkin Soup is a cheerful addition to any meal, plus it’s full of vitamins & minerals & is a wonderful dish to please the whole family. I’d made this traditional soup with a twist, adding Crab Claw to this dish on Mother’s Day.
Heat pan on low heat. Melt butter & sautee onion till tender.
Steam potato, carrot & pumpkin till soft, about 30mins.
Meanwhile, put the crab claws into a steamer top it up with ginger. Steam till claws turn orangey red. * No seasoning for crab is needed as we’re using fresh seafood here.
When vegetables are ready, puree the mixture in a food mill or blender. Put mixture in a pot, add the chicken stock & simmer for 15 minutes. Add the cream & simmer for 5 more minutes, lowering the heat if necessary so it does not boil.
Season, to taste with salt & pepper. Sprinkle parsley & add crab claw. Serve immediately.
I've also included potato & carrot in the recipe to give it a good mix as pumpkin is sweet. Adding other vegetables will give it more flavourable balance.
