Pumpkin Soup

Preparing a grand treat for your friends and family?... Then make sure you have an appetizer on your list... Yes! Serving an appetizer is as important as the ones up coming... An appetizer can be a simple, nutritious, hot dish. Of course, it should enhance the appetite, making your tummy ready to crave for the upcoming starters and main courses.

We got or new Preethi mixer-grinder, with a vegetable processor unit included. So, for us chopping vegetables is just a matter of minutes. We wanted to give it a try, on how it works. All of a sudden we decided to prepare a soup.

A soup is most demanded, when one is not feeling well, like having a fever, hit with a COLD, or even if you are just back from a long walk out in the cold winter. Some hot fluids would recharge you instantly.

Pumpkin soup is generally a base for all sorts of soups and it can also be consumed as such. In restaurants usually we are served with corn starch based soup which adds up to your calories. But pumpkin base is more recommended if you are calorie conscious.
