Preparation:

The first step in preparing this delicious pumpkin cream is parboiling the main ingredient, pumpkin , which we had to cook in pieces. In a separate pot, we melt the butter over medium heat and add the onion and garlic, let it crystallize a bit for a few minutes and add the squash.

We let the pumpkin and ingredients are blended, add the cups of broth and let it boil. If we notice that this cream does not have much consistency, we can dissolve a tablespoon of flour in a little boiling water and slowly add the cream, stirring constantly. Continue cooking for about 5 minutes.
Once the cream boil our remove from the heat and add cheese, stir and add the evaporated milk. Having done this, we can serve our pumpkin cream with toasted bread , which is placed on top of the cream, leaving them floating.
