Surely more than once before the tasting of a dish, done or not by you, you could not stop saying: But how delicious is this . Well that's exactly what happened to me with this pumpkin soup, with a subtle and aromatic tangerine flavor, which makes it so delicious.

Pumpkin soup with tangerines and spices.


We remove the skin and seeds from the pumpkin and chop it.
We peel and chop the carrots, the onions and the potato.
We grate the mandarins and extract their juice.

Put a saucepan on the fire with two tablespoons of oil and when it is hot, brown the garlic clove, without skin. We remove it.
In that oil we sauté all the vegetables: Onion, carrots, squash and potatoes. Salpimentamos.
Once thoroughly sautéed, add the zest of the tangerines and their juice. We add cumin and ginger. And then cover with the vegetable broth. We let them simmer, until all the vegetables are done. Between 15 and 20 minutes.

We beat all the vegetables, to which we will have added the whole milk (or the cream or the evaporated milk, according to preferences) about 8 minutes, until let us have a very fine cream.

At the moment of serving , sprinkle with a mixture of peppers and sprinkle with a few drops of raw virgin olive oil.
