MoV Day 10: Pumpkin Peanut Butter Soup

We were feeling better last night, so we moved on to Day 10 of the Month of Veggies: Pumpkin Peanut Butter Soup.


Pumpkin Peanut Butter Soup: Don't Try This At Home

I expected to like this. I love peanut butter, I like pumpkin just fine... but it was not good. Bland, too thick, and too peanut buttery. This might be okay as a sauce over some roasted pork or chicken, but it did not hold up as a soup.

To Abby's credit, she tried two bites before saying "no thank you". I didn't push it, since I didn't want to finish it myself!

Have a Happy Passover or a Happy Easter or just a Happy Weekend!

Good thing you waited until you were feeling better - shame it didn't turn out...

lol.... sorry it didn't turn out! I know the frustration of building up that anticipation, only to have it go wrong. I'm wondering, though, if you added a bit of sesame oil to it and use it as a dipping sauce for spring rolls, rather than a soup. It could save expensive ingredients!

I was so mad last night I threw it out - I almost never waste food, but I was fasting for Holy Friday, and what a disappointing dinner when I was so hungry! Sheesh! I do think it could have potential in the sauce arena, and with spring rolls would probably be quite yummy! It was just not right as a soup.
