The pumpkin owes its great orange colour to beta-carotene. This can be converted to vitamin A in the body and is good for the eyes. Thanks to its essential oils, ginger stimulates the metabolism.

This cream soup can of course also be prepared with other pumpkin of your choice. However, please note that the rind of other varieties is not edible and must be peeled off.

1 small Russet apple
1 onion
25 grams butter
½ l Vegetable broth
