Broad Brook, CT (PressExposure) September 07, 2009 -- Pumpkin Soup Recipe Site Launched To Provide Cooks With New Inspiration For This Classic Dish
Christine Szalay-Kudra is a woman who knows pumpkin soup inside and out. The founder of a new pumpkin soup recipe resource PumpkinSoup.org is looking forward to the bounty soon to arrive from farms all across the country. Autumn is almost here and that of course means one thing: pumpkins in abundance. While many people's experience with pumpkin soup is limited to an appearance at the Thanksgiving table, Szalay-Kudra is here to inform the world about the many twists that can be made on this classic autumn dish.
"Pumpkins are for more than jack o' lanterns and pie of course. I won't rattle off all of the different pumpkin recipes here, but when it comes to soup alone, there are literally hundreds of different great pumpkin soup recipes out there. Pumpkin soup happens to be a personal favorite of mine and I wanted to share the versatility of this dish with the world," explains Szalay-Kudra.
"Of course there's the classic pumpkin soup recipe with spices and usually some cream; naturally, that's a keeper and you'll find that recipe on the site - but there are so many other possibilities. Pumpkin has a very sophisticated flavor, which works well with a lot of different spices and other ingredients. There's roasted pumpkin soup, spicy pumpkin soup, curried pumpkin soup recipes and a lot of others, which I think, are destined to become classics in their own right. You'll find different recipes in the cuisines of almost every culture in the world; if you ask me, they're all well worth trying!"
Spoken like a true pumpkin soup enthusiast - but as temperatures begin to cool and the days grow shorter, the pumpkin lover in all of us tends to come out. The pumpkin soup recipe directory on PumpkinSoup.org is new, but already contains a wealth of unique recipes, which offer new and different ways to enjoy pumpkin soup.
As Szalay-Kudra reminds us, there's a lot of possibilities within that pumpkin shell and you don't even have to limit the appearance of these soups on your table to the fall and winter months. There are many recipes for chilled pumpkin soup, so you don't have to wait until there's a chill in the air to enjoy the flavor and nutritional value that this noble member of the squash family offers.
