Pumpkin Cream Soup is one of my favorite soups of all time. Itís tasty and has a really nice flavour, and has a creamy texture without using cream.

Ingredients
350g of pumpkin, cut into little chunks
1 onion
2 carrots
1 potato
2 cloves of garlic
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
20g of dry spelt
1 litre of vegetable stock
2 slices of toasted bread, cut into cubes

Method
First, prepare all the ingredients; this way it's super easy to make it because you have all the ingredients ready to go.
Chop the onion and the garlic, cut the potato and pumpkin into cubes and slice the carrots.
Start by sauteing the onion, garlic, and carrots in a pot for 5-6 minutes, or until they start to get soft. You can add some stock, to soften them up. Season with salt and pepper. Add the pumpkin cubes and saute for 5 more minutes.



Lastly, add the potato and the spelt. Stir to combine and pour in the stock and bring the soup to a boil.



When it starts boiling, turn the heat to medium-low, put the lid on and let it simmer for 25-30 minutes, until the veggies and the spelt are cooked through.
The reason I add spelt to cream soups is that it makes them creamier without adding any cream. *You can add brown rice as well. Just a handful. You will really see the difference.
When the spelt is cooked through, let the soup cool for 10 minutes. Then, blend it with a hand blender or a normal one, why you have on hand. Season again if it necessary.
Serve hot with toasted bread on top.
