Pumpkin Soup or Calabaza (kalabasa) soup is a rich and great tasting soup dish that can be served during any meal.
Although this pumpkin soup recipe makes use of calabaza squash, you can use other varieties of pumpkin depending on your preference. I used kalabasa for this recipe because it tastes sweeter compared to ordinary pumpkin. It is also a good source of Vitamin A.
I like this recipe because of its rich creamy flavor. There is nothing fancy going on with this dish. This makes it simple and easy to prepare. It is also a budget-friendly recipe.
