Pumpkin soup with bacon and fried chickpeas

Pumpkin soup with bacon and fried chickpeas

We have autumn, so also the pumpkin season. So I present pumpkin soup in a slightly different version.

Spicy, slightly Middle Eastern style, with the addition of aromatic chickpeas. You’ll love her like me and my dad.

  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon smoked pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Hakaido pumpkin (peeled and seedless)
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 cups of broth
  • nutmeg, ginger
  • A few slices of bacon
  • 1/2 tablespoon of lard
  • can of chickpeas drained and drained
  • pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked pepper

In a large pot on medium heat, melt the butter and fry the garlic and onion for a few minutes until soft. 

Add smoked paprika, chili powder, turmeric, cayenne pepper, salt. Add peeled and chopped carrots and cubes. Pour the whole broth and continue cooking until completely tender. Blend with a blender.

Bring to a boil. Season with ginger and nutmeg.
