1/2 onion
1 liter water
pepper and salt to taste
some parsely and cream (optional)


Fry the onion and bacon in a large saucepan until the onion becomes soft, 3 to 4 mins
Add the cut-up pumpkin and fry all together for another 4 mins
Boil a liter of water and add it to the pumpkin in the saucepan Add the stock cube, some pepper and salt to taste (not too much as the bacon already contains plenty of salt) and let it simmer on medium heat for another 20 mins
Finally take the saucepan of the stove top an blend the soup until it becomes puree soup
Add the milk to soften the taste and serve immediately with a little bit of cream and parsley on top and some bread on the side. Enjoy!




The French Riviera is a place where salads are an important lunch or starter but as the weather has changed the other day, it's time for some more winter recipes. The cold wind makes me long for a nice hot soup. Tasty and simple with some vegetables and some meat to give the soup more flavour. And what better to use than bacon?! Pumpkin and bacon, an excellent combination. If you don't believe me, just give it a try ;-) .
