Casa K Low Fat Pumpkin Soup

Everyone has their own pumpkin soup, however being a little biased here, this one is the best!  It's actually my Hubbys' recipe with my little twist - being the low fat substitute. 

This makes two dinners for our family (it freezes well) or one dinner and 3 lunches for hubby. So feel free to halve this recipe accordingly.   We serve with a cob loaf or turkish bread, heated in the oven prior to serving.

2 large-ish butternut pumpkin (or you can substitute one of the butternuts with a queensland blue or jap)
1 large leek
6 rashers bacon
2 tb olive oil
2 tb chicken stock powder
1 can skim evaporated milk or 300mls cream

Cut up all your pumpkin and place into large stockpot

Fill with water until barely covering pumpkin
Add stock powder

Put lid on, then simmer until soft

Whilst pumpkin is simmering, finely dice bacon and leek
heat oil in frying pan and add bacon and leek, cook until soft.
Add to stockpot with pumpkin and stock.

Puree in a food processor, in lots and return to stockpot when all smooth

Add evaporated milk or cream and stir through, reheat and add liberal amounts of black pepper to taste.

Diiiivine.  I promise.

OMG! This is divine! Even got the hubby's approval, and he isn't big on pumpkin as a veggie (backwards Americans :P)

This is definitely becoming a keeper in this household.
