Mums share their secret ingredients to make the perfect pumpkin soup. Yummy!
I love pumpkin soup on a cold day. Nothing warms up your soul better than a big bowl of pumpkin soup.
I like to add a bit of curry powder and a sprinkle of garam masala to add that little bit of spice and extra warmth.
Some of these clever little secret additions are actually quite genius though!
Secret ingredients from mums
Some mums add leek and onion. Others add garlic and ginger.
Some say cooking the pumpkin in milk is the secret while others add coconut milk or cream to the mixture.
Potato, carrot and celery are popular additions as well as sweet potato too.
Roasting the pumpkin is a popular technique to enhance the flavours.
Adding BACON! for extra flavour also seems to be a winner.
Nutmeg and cumin are both fave spices to add for lots of our mums too.
Meanwhile orange was something we had never heard of before. That’s a bit different.
So what is your secret ingredient in pumpkin soup? Do you have a fail safe recipe that everyone loves?
