Last week, I had wanted to use up all the veggies in my fridge.
I sauteed some onions until they were transparent, and then added 2 cups of water.
Then I added some pumpkin and when the pumpkin was cooked, I added some chicken broth.
I then whizzed the soup with my hand held blender until there were no lumps.
Envisioning fried renkon (lotus root) chips, I fried thinly sliced pieces. Unfortunately, I drained them on a paper towel and they kind of steamed, so they weren't too crispy.
After setting aside the renkon, I sauteed some kale from the lanai with some red bell pepper in some olive oil.
I ladled a bowl of the pumpkin soup and then topped it with the renkon, kale, red bell and then sliced some okra.
Dinner was served.
It definitely isn't soup weather here yet, but I'm glad I was able to use up the veggies in my fridge and the kale from the lanai.
I'm also sending this soup to Deb for her Souper Sunday. It's been awhile since I've sent her a soup. If you've never checked out her round-up, please do, there are always creative and delicious creations there.
