pumpkin is a big veggie in austria. we have the famous pumpkin seed oil, pumpkin pesto, pumpkin bread.. i can’t get these fancy foods here in malta, but i do get pumpkin! so i wanted to make some soup… though it turned out totally different from the soups i made at home. in the past i always used hokkaido pumpkin, small in size but big in taste! and it’s handy to use as you don’t have to peel it.
here in malta i got huge pieces of big monster pumpkins from the veggie man: orange and white, which was a mistake to use for the soup! luckily i had more of the orange one and added nearly double of the amount at the end to make it more tasty. i didn’t like version 1 at all! but’s that’s what it’s all about in live, isn’t it.. you live you learn.. (reminds me of the song of alanis morisette which i loved when i was 13…)
