Now how does the butternut differ from other Pumpkin varieties ? As the name suggests, it tastes somewhat nutty and not as fruity as its brother the Hokkaido. I find him in any case very tasty and once a nice change.

Soups Time Baby!

It’s getting creamy

Now how do we get the soup especially creamy? By blending them very finely in a high-powered blender with a handful of soaked cashews. I’ve linked you to my favorite blender below (no sponsoring). It really makes a huge difference whether you puree the soup with a really good blender or a magic wand. If your blender is not so powerful, you can also replace the cashews with coconut milk.

Very tasty with it tastes homemade naan bread, spelt rolls or baguette. So that our soup still gets a certain extra, we sprinkle them with fresh parsley. Not to forget, of course, the chickpeas. Yum!
