    How did you know that I just this morning bought 11.5kg of pumpkin for $1.05 to make and freeze pumpkin soup for the winter?  Yep great deal at the local Fruit and Veg shop.  $0.09/kg!!!  Will it work for the other types of pumpkin?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - May 18, 2012 - 2:45 PM

      That’s an awesome deal!!ReplyCancel

    • Kirsty - May 18, 2012 - 2:54 PM

      I’ve made with another type and it worked out well.  I chopped it up more though as it was too big.ReplyCancel

    Donna Hay’s roasted pumpkin is so good & what’s even better is the whole family loves it :) ReplyCancel

  • Sally - May 21, 2012 - 11:44 PM

    I freeze my soups this way too (Antartica tops are great for the initial freeze!!!) and most other of my freezer meals go in flat too. Then stored in a small SAMLA (Ikea) container in my freezer!
    (And I had the exact same food processor for years. Dont drop the motor part…it doesn’t like it!)ReplyCancel

    I have a pumpkin soup recipe I just love. But it involves a LOT of chopping, which is bad for my arthritis, so I don’t make it nearly as often as we’d like.  I’m going to give this one a try! Thanks for posting it (and the freezing tips).ReplyCancel

  • jess - June 1, 2012 - 3:38 PM

    Thanks for recommending Kat – I don’t even like pumpkin soup but this looked so easy I thought I’d try it. I also roasted half a bulb of garlic to go into it, and substituted extra stock for the cream to make it low fat, and it was delish! Husband, baby, and toddler all loved it. Is it possible to re-use the freezer bags? or do any of your readers have other suggestions? I’m trying to cut down on how much plastic we turf… Love your blog, thank you!ReplyCancel

Here is my version below, […]

    Oh thanks heaps Kat. Brian (a Block addict) was telling me tonight how yum the soup looked (his attempt at hinting for it to be added to our menu plan for the next fortnight). I have been trying to print it form here but it’s not working.ReplyCancel

    I made this but swapped condensed chicken soup for condensed asparagus soup as I wanted to squeeze another vegetable in there. You may think it sounds disgusting but was a huge hit with my family (including my 2 and 5 year old!!).ReplyCancel
