Cheese pumpkin, buttercup squash, kabocha, sugar pumpkin, kuri pumpkin or other dense orange fleshed pumpkins or squash will do. Tight on time? Sub 3 cans pumpkin puree – you’ll sacrifice some flavor but it’s better than not making the soup at all.
This soup is super special. It could be the centerpiece at a dinner party, the star at Thanksgiving or a soul-soothing balm anytime. It’s all that, and more.
The toppings are optional, but if you have the time and inclination to make them, you won’t regret it.
