Notes

  • Note 1 I use Butternut Pumpkin (also known as Butternut Squash). 2 smaller pumpkins produce about 10 cups of pumpkin when peeled and chopped
  • Note 2 I use 2-3 washed potatoes. You can substitute Sweet Potato here if you like. 
  • Note 3 If you worry that this will be too strong, use 1 tsp. It adds great flavour and blends in well
  • Note 4 Vertically is easiest with the stick blender to minimise liquid splashing out. I use a technique of a figure 8 movement with the blender to ensure all pumpkin and potatoes is blended and the soup texture is consistently smooth. If you have a lid on smoothie type blender, most of these require the soup mix to be fully cooled before adding it to your blender.
