Simple Pumpkin Soup Recipe
April 5, 2013
This soup has been a little while in the making. We collected the seeds to grow the pumpkin 23/07/2012 and then planted them in the garden in November.
They grew over Summer and were harvested this week. This is my first pumpkin crop and I have to say that I am a little bit proud of it!
I picked the first of the crop of couple of weeks ago as it split and it has been drying in the sun, as the others are now doing.
This week I am taking part in the Local Harvest Challenge. The Challenge is about reducing food miles, eating local and seasonal food. One of the best ways you can do this is by growing your own. My little harvest makes it the perfect time to take a knife to one of these beauties to see how they taste.
We have had visitors over Easter and I worked at my office job yesterday so I kept it simple and made this family favorite.
Note: the prep time for this recipe includes the time to bake the pumpkin. To save time you could cook it in the pot instead. I like the extra flavor baking provides.
Local Harvest Challenge Notes:
I am looking forward to experimenting with the rest of the pumpkins to come up with some new recipes.
My pumpkin recipes from last year included:
Do you have any new ideas for me. What else can I can try with my homegrown pumpkin? Let me know in the comments.
