Pumpkin Soup | Tuggy Tucks In
It’s that time of year again when pumpkins are in season. We only get a short window in the UK to which to use the bright orange fruit from the squash family. However, unlike little brother, butternut squash, pumpkin is often seen as a gimmick for carving into jack-o-lanterns for Halloween. When I lived in New Zealand, they were nuts about pumpkin soup and they even sell it by the tin like we do with tomato soup.

This autumn, I’m here to tell you how to turn your pumpkin purchase into a delicious pumpkin soup.
