I was experimenting with cooking a whole pumpkin in the crock pot the other day and forgot about my experiment. Seven hours later I had a big pumpkin mess on my hands! The pumpkin was definitely “well-done” and I wasn’t sure how the roasted taste would work in our pumpkin Blizzards. I decided to try to make a pumpkin soup.
It was delicious! I should have doubled the recipe because it was gone almost before I took the picture!
I made this pumpkin soup in my Vita-Mix, but you can use any blender or food processor to puree’ the soup. Remember homemade pumpkin tastes better than pumpkin from a can. Find out how to cook a pumpkin here.
