Comfort food

Chop – picar

Fry – freír


 … and then fry them until soft.


Bring to the boil – llevar a embullición

Simmer – cocer a fuego lento


Add the onions and a kilo of pumpkin and simmer for 10 minutes.


Pour – verter


Pour 150 ml cream into the pan and bring to the boil.


Season – sazonar
