As it’s almost Halloween, the children have been carving pumpkins and getting pretty excited about the whole thing. It always seems a waste to me when the flesh of the pumpkin is thrown away, so I thought I would have a go at making soup. I have always enjoyed butternut squash soup and figured the recipe I normally use could be adapted, as they are of the same family.
I’m happy to say it works perfectly well with ‘normal’ pumpkin. You get a slightly deeper colour and a slightly milder flavour but the texture is the same and the method is simple – always important to me. So if you’re looking for a great treat to serve at a Halloween party, why not give this one a go. A terrific winter warmer.
