Autumn is upon many of us in the north, and with it comes the longing for comfort food- and plenty of it! Satisfy your family this week with a hearty bowl of seasonally fresh and flavorful comforting pumpkin soup.Does you family have a favorite soup? In our house, survey results vary.
Kids say carrot soup’s deeeelicious!
My vote goes to split pea soup.
Husband would rather not vote on soups. Or eat them. Ever.
Tuesday is soup day at my house. Husband’s at work eating some kind of typical Costa Rican dish, like rice and beans, while we happily scarf down bowl after bowl of homemade soup. Many Tuesdays you’ll find a colorful orange bowl set before us- whether carrot or pumpkin based. My kids can’t tell the difference.
Pumpkin soups are easy to make, but prepping the pumpkin can seem daunting. Big, heavy orange flesh capped with tough outer rind. It takes some elbow grease to carve slices out of it, but you’ll be paid back in full with spoonfuls of silky bliss.
Use your biggest, sharpest knife, depending on the size of your pumpkin. It will make the job easier, I promise. Or, if you’re like me and wanna make your husband feel like “The Man,” sweetly ask him to chunk it up for you.
Whichever soups hold your heart, make room for a handful of new pumpkin soup recipes to invade your dinner table in a mighty flavorful way! Crusty bread,
Just for fun, I’ve listed the recipes in the order I plan on making them. And I DO plan on trying every last one…for lunch, when Husband’s eating at work.
Which one will be your top pick?
