Velouté de potiron

In other words pumpkin soup… and a very easy recipe.

1- Peel and cut in large cubes about one quarter of a medium pumpkin.
2- In a large pan place some olive oil, the pumpkin pieces, five cloves of garlic, salt and pepper, and a handful of fresh basil leaves. Mix well and let it cook on medium fire for at least 15 minutes.

3. Add just enough water to barely cover the pumpkin, and cook on low to medium fire until it is done. You should be able to pick a fork in the pumpkin, feeling it soft. This should only take 15 minutes as the pumpkin was partly cook when fried.
4. Pass the pumpkin pieces with only a little bit of the liquid in a mixer.

To serve: you can add a spoon of creme fraîche for each bowl. I served it with some chile chipotle and it was very good.
