Peas and Pumpkin Soup

My first ever recipe with pumpkin and a direct copy from the wonderful Sanjeev Kappor’s website.   Original recipe found here.


Green Peas – 1 cup

Red pumpkin – 100 grams(peeled and diced)

Olive oil – 2 tbslsp

Vegetable stock –  2 1/2 cups (I used 2 chicken stock cubes)

Salt – to taste

Black pepper powder- to taste

Low fat Milk – 1/4 cup

Red capsicum 1 (roasted and puréed)



Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a  pan, add green peas. Add 1 cup water and 1 chicken stock cube and cook.  Heat 1 tbsp in another pan and add the pumpkin and sauté. Add salt and black pepper powder to both the pans. Cook peas for 2 minutes. Add nutmeg powder and 1 cup water and the second chicken stock cube to the pumpkin, cover and cook till soft. Put the peas into a mixer jar, add ¼ cup milk and puree. Put the puree into the pan. Rinse the mixer jar with ¼ cup stock and add to the pan. When it comes to a boil pour the soup into a soup dish.

When thee pumpkin cooks, puree with stock. Pour both the soups into individual soup bowls from opposite sides. Place a blob of pureed red capsicum. Serve hot
