While the meat is cooking, prepare the vegetables. We clean the pods of young beans, remove the beans. Instead of fresh beans, you can take a can of canned beans or boil dry beans in advance until tender.
Remove a thin layer of skin from the carrots with a vegetable peeling knife. We rub the carrots on a coarse grater.
Remove the husk from the onion head, chop the onion finely.
In a frying pan, heat a tablespoon of refined vegetable oil for frying, sauté finely chopped onions and grated carrots for 6-7 minutes until soft.
We peel the pumpkin, remove the seed bag with seeds with a tablespoon. Cut the pulp into small slices.
Peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes.
When the meat is ready, we take out a bunch of celery from the pan - it has fulfilled its function and will no longer be needed.
Put peeled beans, chopped potatoes, pumpkin slices and sautéed onions with carrots into the pan. Add tomato puree or thick tomato sauce.
Bring to a boil, cook over medium heat for 30 minutes.
At the end of cooking, salt to taste, season with freshly ground black pepper.
Remove the finished soup from the stove, cover the pan with a towel, leave for 20 minutes so that the vegetables are better steamed.
Serve soup with pumpkin, beans and pork ribs with sour cream and fresh herbs, put the ribs on a separate plate. Bon Appetit!
Any kind of pumpkin is suitable for making soups, it is important to remember that a sweeter pumpkin, for example, nutmeg, quickly boils and turns into mashed potatoes, so it must be added to the soup 10-15 minutes before the end of cooking.
