Hello Lovelies, I think if I had to choose the one dish that stands for autumn, than it would be pumpkin soup for sure. As many varieties of pumpkin/squash there are there are also recipes for pumpkin soup, you just have to google it. But that’s no wonder since pumpkin is so versatile and works with so many flavors. You can just cook it, or you can roast in the oven. You can add veggies or fruits, there are no limits to your fantasies.
One of my favorite combinations is adding apple to my soup, since I like the slight sweetness that the apple is giving to the soup. And there is a veggie or root, that I really like and that I feel is a bit underestimated or forgotten at some point: parsnip. Often just added to baby food, I think it has much more potential. We really like it roasted in the oven or pan roasted, but its also really good in juices or as chips. It taste similar to carrots or celery, but milder and gets a certain sweetness when roasted. And it’s a perfect match for my pumpkin soup with apple, so that’s the recipe I like to share with you today:
Just give me a piece of fresh bread to go a long with the soup and I’m in autumn heaven. I really like roasted pumpkin seeds, especially good a bit spicy with chili, some pepita oil, fresh thyme and vegan cream as topping.
How do you like your pumpkin soup, whats your favorite addition to it? I recently also made one with roasted pumpkin and mango, a bit exotic, but turned our really delicious.
Have a lovely autumn day everyone!
