It grew happily without much attention from me and it turned out that it was a pumpkin vine. Unfortunately I only got one pumpkin off it, and only a small one but I turned it into the most delicious soup!

I used this recipe from taste. Surprisingly, I actually followed the recipe too. Fairly rare for me. The only thing I changed was just a smidgen less cumin than suggested so it wasn't too strong and using sour cream to stir through instead of natural yoghurt. I also used my own homemade chicken stock. I get such pleasure out of making and using my own stock. It makes everything taste awesome and I feel so organised by have it in the freezer all ready to go.
I hadn't used this recipe before but to be honest, it's the best pumpkin soup recipe I've ever tried and I've already used it again since. That's a pretty good referral from a not-really-a-soup-person.
What's your favourite soup? I'd love a recipe recommendation to try out.
