Is pumpkin soup healthy?
As I often mention, it depends on what ingredients are put into your pumpkin soup. Most pumpkin soups are quite healthy and made with simple and fresh ingredients. Pumpkins, in general, are good for you and for heart health. They are loaded with fiber, potassium, and vitamin C which have been shown to support the heart and regulate blood pressure.
How long does Homemade Pumpkin Soup Last?
Most vegetable or pumpkin soup recipes thats already been cooked should last 3-4 days in the fridge. If you would like to keep your pumpkin soon longer, place in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months.
Do I have to peel pumpkin for soup?
Even though skins of either pumpkins or squash are edible, it is best to peel for a soup recipe. This is because some pumpkin skins might be too tough and not cook through well enough. So its best to just peel them.
Pumpkin Soup Substitutes
There are some substitutes that can be done for this roasted pumpkin soup recipe that I thought i should mention.
Pumpkin: Can’t find any fresh pumpkins, it’s ok to use pureed canned pumpkins or alternatively you can use butternut squash.
