PUMPKIN SOUP - CREATIVE MONDAY LINKY







    Hello and welcome to Creative Mondays hosted by Clairejustineoxox and Judy H-J's Thoughts where you can link up all your creative posts each week.


RECIPE
     
2lbs (1kg) of diced beef or chicken
2lbs(1kg) of pumpkin ( diced)
10-12 cups (4-5 pints, 2.5 -3 litres) water
1lb (500g) yellow yam 
2 cocos
1 1/2 cups(1/2lb, 250g) of flour for dumplings
1 whole hot pepper (optional)
1 sprig of thyme
2 stalks of escallion
1 clove garlic
black pepper
1 onion
1 pk of soup mix ( optional)
      Place the meat, diced pumpkin, soup mix, thyme, escallion, onion, garlic and water in a pot.  Bring to a boil and wait until the meat is tender and the pumpkin almost disintegrated.  Crush the pumpkin further with a fork if necessary, then throw in the dumplings and peeled yellow yam and cocos.  Add salt to taste.  Cook for about an hour or until the yam and cocos are tender and the dumplings are cooked.  This should serve about 4 to 5 people.
    Saturday is usually a soup day here in Jamaica but of course there are some of us who have it whenever we wish to. My family and I have always been big fans of pumpkin soup especially Janine, Sutcliffe and me!
