Elemiah - cooking lessons

Because I love to cook, I decided to share with you some of my favorite French recipes. I converted any measures, to fit as many people as possible in the world. I will start with a seasonal recipe, “La soupe de potiron”, “Pumpkin soup” in english. This recipe is very simple and taste delicious.

Ingredients you need for 4 or 5 people :

  • 1 onion (1 oignon)
  • 1 carrot (1 carotte)
  • 1 pumpkin 2.2 lb (1 potiron de 1kg)
  • butter 0.22 lb (100gr de beurre)
  • milk 1 cup (1/4 de litre de lait)
  • grated nutmeg (noix de muscade râpée)
  • salt, pepper (sel, poivre)

Cut the pumpkin flesh into pieces. Peel and chop the onion. Melt over low heat onion in butter. Add the pumpkin, the peeled carrot and 4 cup water. Add salt, pepper and grated nutmeg. Cook 30 minutes from the boiling. Add the milk at the end of the cook. Use a blender to mix all well. Bon appétit ! (Pic coming soon !)

Couper la chair du potiron en morceaux. Peler et couper l’oignon, le faire revenir à feu doux dans le beurre. Ajouter les morceaux de potiron, la carotte coupée et 1 litre d’eau. Saler, poivrer, noix muscade. Laisser cuire 30 minutes à partir de l’ébullition. Ajouter le lait à la fin de la cuisson. Passer au mixeur. Déguster bien chaud… bon appétit !
