Reviews of Pumpkin Soup

Rating 5 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again October 28 2014
I've never been ambitious enough to make my own pumpkin puree, but this simple recipe inspired me. Pumpkin soup is a big thing over here in Belgium! They don't sell canned pumpkin puree here so I started roasted my pumpkins in the oven when I moved here and have never looked back. This soup was absolutely perfect! Simple and gorgeous!

The smoke, the sizzle, the aroma, yeah - it's time for BBQ but don't buy scrappy steaks if you want to eat like a king.

Perfect for those days when there is a fire roaring, snow is falling outside, and all you can do is cuddle up with a good book and a bowl of soup!

The concept of Vichyssoise is simple; cook some leek and potato soup, stir in cream, cool the soup quickly and serve. And who am I to argue with that?

Chicken and Ham Soup is one of my favourites and makes use of a chicken carcass (and any bits of meat still left), so great for economy too!
