I don’t wanna be Master Chef : my easy pumpkin & leek soup ( as Italian women are not all chefs!)
Let’s start a new category for my blog :
I DON’T WANNA BE MASTERCHEF !
Who said Italian women are always cooking elaborated meals??
We are very busy as every woman in the world is but….we don’t like to buy cooked food by other people ( or at least is what I am not doing & my family & friends don’t do except very rare cases)or we prefer to have a pizza in a restaurant & doing nothing at all😜
Who said all of us are making pasta at home? who told you that in Italy we are all Master Chef??
I am a native Tuscan woman born in a Tuscan family with deep Italian roots based on heathy & fresh food but I din’t cook complicated receipes at all & don’t spend mornings doing this.
These easy receipes are those I invented for myself & want to share with other women as me , who cannot or don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen but want to eat tasty handmade food without buying them already cooked in a supermarket.
I love eating good food & prefer doing it by myself as I think it is healthier, better & …cheaper too!
I have to admit that I don’t like to follow a receipe and when I do it often I change some of the ingredients depending if I haven’t them in my fridge or not or just to add my personal touch to the dish😉
Usually the result is very good & it surprises myself every time 🙃🙃🙃so let’s try my easy receipe & let me know if you liked it, if I can do it you can too!
Let’s start :
half pumkin from Mantova ( it has been just nominated the Italian capital of the culture for 2016)
a quarter of a pomagranate
some bacon or speck in sticks
extra virgin oil
Cleaning & cut the pumpikin adding carrots& leek,salt & water
let it boil until it is soft, then mix it as a creamy purè
add crispy sticks of bacon fried WITHOUT oil in a pan ( if you are vegan or veg you can avoid to add it & you don’t miss the good taste)
put the soup in a plate adding some pepper , the pomagranate seeds , bacon or speck & extra virgin oil to guarnish it & that’s all!
Light, easy & tasty😜👍🔝perfect for a grey autumnal dinner, enjoy🍷
