So here's that soup I mentioned the other day. It's very, very simple. This soup is based off of Dalva's soup (Dalva was the housekeeper where P lived in Brazil), which appears to have used a different variety of pumpkin.
Additionally, this is my October entry for No Croutons Required.
2 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
4 cups water
1-2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon pumpkin skin puree (optional)
couple teaspoons olive oil (optional)
Mix the above, except oil, in a saucepan. Bring to a slow boil, reducing until it's the thickness of tomato soup. Remove from heat and puree using a blender or immersion blender. Ladle into bowls and drizzle with oil. Serves 2-4.
