Pumpkin is one undisputed icon of the fall season and truffle flavoured pumpkin soup with mushroom crispies is all one needs to welcome autumn. Oh my gourd — autumn is finally here and so is our obsession with pumpkin. 

From Halloween to Thanksgiving, the vegetable (or fruit, scientifically) deserves a lot of credit for making this time of year so festive. As pumpkin is being picked in September, here’s a recipe of truffle flavoured pumpkin soup with mushroom crispies to instantly put you in the fall spirit. 

Ingredients:

1 medium sized pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and cubed

1 potato cubed

3 to 4 green chillies finely chopped

2 inches ginger grated

2 tsp sea salt

2 onions, peeled and roughly chopped

3 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped

1 to 2 tbsp olive oil

Few drops of truffle oil

4 to 5 cups of vegetable stock

Squeeze of lemon juice

Air fried mushroom slices with garlic to garnish

Method:

Sauté the pumpkin, potato, onion, green chillies, ginger and garlic with the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the vegetable stock in the sauce pan. Allow the soup to simmer for 10 to 20 minutes before blending it until super smooth.
