Chickpea and Roast Pumpkin Soup - Donna Hay

It seems my commitment to our Donna Hay group is upside down and backwards.  First, I could not find the cookbook.  I am not sure how to admit that it was in the bookcase but it was laying down rather than standing up.   What can I say?

Then tonight, I made the most delicious butternut squash (pumpkin is what the recipe called for) and left out the chickpeas.  I can't explain this any more than explaining the "missing" cookbook.  Maybe, I really can.  The Jewish holidays just finished a few days ago after one month of holidays.  If I was not in shul or eating, I was cooking.  I felt as if I was on the fast track for a full month.

On top of the above, the school year started and I am teaching a new grade which means additional preparation.  One more time taker was the marriage of my grandson which means shopping, planning and of course, attending.  Wonderful, wonderful but a bit more pressure.

I think, I am making a new beginning now despite my mistaken soup.

This is a delicious soup with a sweet flavor.One of the ingredients was Dijon mustard which had me a bit concerned but I could not taste it.  It didn't sound like a proper part of butternut squash soup.  The chickpeas also bothered me, not seeming to fit in but having forgotten them, I can't tell you if they added to the soup.

This was a snap to make, especially for me, since I had some mashed butternut squash already cooked and waiting.  I had to add a few ingredients and presto, I had a yummy soup.

Gaye selected this soup and I am happy.

Check out the other Donna cooks and see what they have made.

  1. I just didn't get to this one. I would have used the butternut squash, too. It was good without the chickpeas is a good thing.

  2. Glad you liked the soup. The chickpeas were an optional rather than a required, I think - they just beefed it up.

  3. Well, I'm also very happy to find such a nice recipe, and I also want to give everyone good advice to definitely try to join this poly dating site. Perhaps you don't know, but these romantic relationships are becoming more and more popular nowadays and I am very glad that I managed to find an ideal couple thanks to this review.
