Flavoring Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin soup is not only flavored with herbs. There are plenty of options that ensure that your soup has just that little bit extra. You can fill this in yourself with all kinds of tasty toppings or preparations.

As I mentioned, you can also add other ingredients that are not herbs or spices.

Feta, for example, gives a creamy taste to the soup. Feta cubes are placed in the soup just before it is served. That also looks nice, those white cubes in the middle of your soup! Just like with olives, by the way. Also, cut into pieces and place in the middle of the soup before serving. Not too much because it can be very overpowering unless you like that again of course.

Santen, also called coconut cream, is also an ingredient that you can add when you want to make a delicious Indonesian pumpkin soup. Santen is added during preparation. What’s also nice: a little cream in the ready-made soup that is already in the bowl to finish it off. Also looks nice, so white curl in the soup when you are going to serve the soup. When you sprinkle little chopped coriander leaves over it, the picture is complete. Roasted pumpkin seeds also give a nice effect, sprinkled over the pumpkin soup, just before serving. A lust for the eye!

You see, I could go on and on with the ingredient list. The last thing I would like to say is: Taste! Taste in between, taste when it’s ready for half an hour. Then the herbs are withdrawn more and really taste when it has been in the fridge for a day if you have any left. So you can immediately taste the difference with fresh soup or day-old soup. You might want to make this pumpkin soup a day earlier from now on because the spices will then have come to taste delicious and fully.
