The color orange

I love how all the fruits and vegetables are so colorful. How could we live without colors in our life?? Imagine a rainbow in one color....Sad. Imagine all flowers were white. Terrible. But we are blessed with colors. How can you not smile at purple grapes on a plate of green? Or peaches swimming in a sea of white cream???
I love to eat the color orange. I do! I love carrots. I sometimes think that in a previous life I was a fuzzy rabbit!
So my favorite soup is orange color....with my favorite vegetables...carrots and pumpkins (sometimes I add sweet potatoes, but I am stiil calories consience...)

My Orange Colored Soup

2 medium onions, chopped
4-5 carrots, sliced
500 grams pumpkin, cubed
salt & pepper
parsley leaves, garnish

In a pot heat some olive oil (or butter) and saute the onions till golden. Add the pumpkin and carrots and saute for a few minutes. Add water and cook till vegetables are tender. Add salt and pepper (if you like ginger can be added) and puree.

Granish with parsley leaves or pumpkin seeds.

I like the looks of this orange colored soup, although pumpkin is not my favorite taste. But mixed with carrots it might taste good.
