History

I like pumpkin… but, to be perfectly honest, not really that much.

I don’t mind it in October. Hahaha! (I prefer squash.) But this year, I felt like trying something new.

Do you know what I do when I’m not baking energizing snacks, desserts and breakfast treats? I make soup, soup and more soup. When I was pregnant, I could have eaten soup day and night. Soup is amazing. It can be anything from a light snack to a gargantuan meal. There are no limits to what you can do with soup. I’m just crazy about it.

Even though I make soups every single week, guess what my wonderful family said when they first tasted this soup? “Mommy, this is the best soup you’ve make in a looooong time.” So, I think it’s a hit.

A pumpkin soup with a subtle autumnal flavour which has a bit of date puree in it (obviously) to give the spices a little sweet and salty taste. I also add pumpkin seeds to make it even more nutritious because pumpkin seeds are high in protein.

Enjoy the great comfort of this soup. It’s going to be oh so delicious!

FAQ

Where can I buy Madame Labriski date puree?

At IGA, Rachelle Béry, Marché Tradition and Bonichoix grocery stores across Quebec. My purees contain no preservatives and can be found in the fruit and vegetable section (yes, dates are fruit) near the pre-cut fruit and vegetables. If you can’t find them, simply ask a member of staff!
