Pumpkin Soup with Parmesan

 

Pumpkin Soup with Parmesan – a Flavour Straight from Italy

 

Although the peak season for pumpkins is of course over now, it is still possible to buy fresh ones. So I use this opportunity to make our favourite meals with this vegetable like, e.g. the spicy pie. But I also still look for new recipes because, who knows, maybe we will discover a new favourite?

This recipe for Pumpkin Soup with Parmesan comes from “The Italian Cooking Encyclopaedia”. It is a huge book that I have had for ages. Apart from the classic recipes, it also includes a lot of information about typical Italian ingredients and tips for preparation of basics like pasta or pizza dough. I love cooking dishes from that book or even just to look at the photos.

When you cook and try this Pumpkin Soup, you will know straight away it is of Italian origin. There is quite a lot of Parmesan cheese in it, and you will taste it. I love it, especially since pumpkins tend not to have strong flavours. I even feel the soup without the Parmesan would be probably bland and not interesting.

Depending on the type of squash you use, you may have to use less or more stock. When I cooked the soup for the first time, I used butternut squash, and I had to add 750ml of the stock to get the right consistency. But when I made it again, I had a different type of pumpkin that was quite watery, and it didn’t require so much liquid to have a pretty thick soup.

You can serve this Pumpkin Soup with Parmesan either with pasta (the original recipe suggests broken spaghetti) for a more filling option or with pumpkin seeds for a lighter version; the choice is yours.
