Creamy Pumpkin N Apple Soup

While browsing, saw that Madhuram announced for AFAM october 2008, the fruit of the month is Pumpkin...i love pumpkins as soup..its too cold here n rainy..they will be perfect as soup while its too cold,so i bought pumpkin pieces in chinese store, back home i want to prepare them as something creamy with pumpkin..started preparing for the soup, suddenly i saw two green apples were laying in my fruit basket..as they r bit sour, none want to have them, thought of adding them along the pumpkin pieces for preparing them as soup..They turned up wonderful with bit sour n sweet n creamy..here we go for..


2cups Pumpkin pieces
1cup Green apple pieces
1no Onion chopped
2nos Potatoes chopped
5nos Garlic pieces
2nos Vegetable stock cubes
1/4tsp  Pepper powder
3stalks Parsley leaves
1cup Low fat milk
Salt
Olive oil

Heat 2tsp of Olive oil in a pressure cooker..add the chopped onions n garlic to the hot oil n stir them until the onions turns transculent, now add the potatoes, pumpkin pieces with vegetable stock cubes n cook for a while, add the chopped apple pieces n parsley leaves as well as salt n pepper powder to the pressure cooker..cook just for few minutes, add 1cup of water to the cooked veggies n close them with lid, let them cook upto 3 whistles..put of the stove..keep aside..

Once the pressure get released, blend the cooked veggies with a hand blender n add the milk to the soup..just bring them to boil n put off the stove...just sprinkle pepper powder r white pepper powder while serving..

Creamy Pumpkin n apple soup is ready to serve..serve them hot with toasted bread slices..
