Frequently Asked Questions
What pumpkins are best for soup?
For a creamy texture and rich flavour, we recommend using sugar pumpkins or pie pumpkins. Their flesh is less stringy and more flavourful compared to decorative pumpkins.
How can I store leftover pumpkin soup?
Ensure it cools down completely, transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate. It'll last up to 3 days. You can also freeze it for longer shelf life.
Can I make this recipe vegan?
Yes! Swap the heavy cream with coconut milk or almond milk for a vegan version.
