Daughter dear has been fighting an awful cold for a few days, so I decided to make some hot soup to help with the healing process.
I love a hot soup.....one that fills your innards and warms you up immediately.....just the thing for a cold day, but in this instance it was a coldy coughy mucusy day.
Into the pot of water went:
a large piece of pumpkin cut into small pieces
2 large carrots cut into small pieces
a big piece of fresh ginger peeled and cut into small pieces .....throw the large leftover piece that is full of strands into the pot as well.
one large onion sliced
several sprigs of fresh Guyanese thyme...strip the leaves off (regular thyme can be used)
one tablespoon of Bajan seasoning (minced blend of herbs)
one tablespoon of salt
one tablespoon of sunflower oil.
Cook everything till nice and tender. Remove the large piece of ginger.
Pour the well cooked veggies (with the water) into the blender in batches and blend until smooth ...about 2 minutes per batch.
Your reward? Nice creamy tasty soup fit for a king/queen.
Reheat and garnish with fresh herbs and serve with Italian herbal crackers.
Yummy yummy yummy and will warm you up or knock that dreaded cold out of your system....presto!!
