Sometimes, despite your best intentions, delicious recipes, and good will, you just don’t use that pumpkin. Pumpkin lasts a long time, you figure. It’s still firm to the touch, it’s still good. But when the event you bought the pumpkin for passes… And then the next major event passes… When you go away on vacation and the pumpkin is still sitting there, innocently resting by the onions, you know you have to do something.
And there’s nothing better to do with pumpkin on a cold, blustery day, than make soup. But which soup?
I had already tried to conquer the pumpkin but was stopped in my tracks by the sheer number of pumpkin soup options. And if you broaden your search to include other squashes … well, the choices are overwhelming.
