Hello lovelies, what would autumn time be without pumpkins? Definitely less tasty, which is why I will share some new pumpkin recipes with you. Like this fine pumpkin soup with pears. The combination of pumpkin and fruity pear is just wonderful and gives the soup a special touch. And a delicious topping shouldn’t be missing. We rarely eat soup without a topping. I think it usually makes a soup a full meal, that really saturates.

Crunchy Brussels sprouts, wholemeal toast, mushrooms and pear crown this pumpkin soup, and you'll be surprised about the extra flavor kick this combination gives the soup. You should definitely give it a try!

Kürbis-Suppe mit Birnen

The soup gets really creamy and you can use both hokkaido or butternut squash. I like to use both versions, especially because you don‘t have to peel them, which is always very practical. By the way, there are more than 1000 types of pumpkin, but some of them are ornamental pumpkins, so not edible. Pumpkin contains a lot of beta-carotene, vitamins A, C, D and E as well as potassium, calcium and zinc. We also love it because it‘s so versatile. You can eat it raw, cook it and bake it. It tastes sweet and savory and is still really healthy.

You can look forward to many more pumpkin recipes from me and if you can not wait, then look at the other pumpkin recipes, which I have on the blog already here. From soup to salad, pizza, ravioli and overnight oats, I'm just amazed myself at how many pumpkin recipes I've posted already.

I hope I can inspire you with this slightly different pumpkin soup with pears. You should definitely try it. It tastes really excellent, very creamy and is something different for a change in autumn.
