I enjoy making Leek and potato soup courtesy of Delia but i've just made some adding bacon, as suggested by NannyP on her foodie forum.

Took some to work today and just had remainder - Yummy with homemade bread. :lol:

Easy Pumpkin Soup

I made this today, using some pieces left over from some very dark, orange pumpkin slices, and 2/3rds of one of my butternut squashes.
I roasted some pumpkin yesterday, it's very difficult to peel, so yesterday, I cooked the peel with pumpkin attached, and the squash, on top of the woodburner. I don't have fresh corriander, so used coriander powder instread. Didn't take long for me to finish this off this morning and we had some for lunch with some French bread.
Very low cholesterol, and very creamy and nourishing.
Have enough left for when our visitors come next week.

CP's vegetable soup, with pumpkin.
(this is a bit of a hit-&-miss recipe! :roll: :lol: )

3-4 small potatoes.
1 large onion.
2 large leeks.
4-5 medium carrots.
2 sticks celery.
2-3 cloves garlic.
cooked pumpkin pulp & juice from a large-ish pumpkin - this was in the freezer left over from last year so not sure exactly how much there was!

Sweated the onion in a little olive oil for a few minutes, then added the rest of the ingredients as I chopped them up & stirred until they were all covered with the oil.

Added a sprinkle of mixed herbs & black pepper & stock made with Marigold vegetable bouillon powder. Added the cooked pumpkin & juice.

Simmered until tender then passed it all through the food processor until it was nearly smooth but still with tiny chunks.

Heat through again if necessary then serve.

You may want to check the taste & add anything else if you need to as I'm not certain that I remembered everything that I put in this soup.... :oops:

chop onion and soften in a knob of butter,
