Spanish Pumpkin and Bean Soup

This chunky soup is made even more interesting with the addition of diced pears and a classic Catalan picada thickener of garlic, almonds and bread. In Morocco, lentils might be used instead of chickpeas or white beans, and sometimes rice or braised greens are added to the mix.

really good
December 15, 2014
It's hard to find a soup that fills myriad dietary requirements, isn't boring, and is filling. This one hits the spot. Without the pears I can make it with what I have in the freezer and pantry. For GF I leave out the bread, for vegetarian/vegan I drop the ham and swap the broth for vegetable stock. It's still good any way. We freeze or pressure can this soup too (without the bread of course) and it's even better later.
Pros: Good Value, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Healthy, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

Delicious, hearty fall soup that stores easy
September 25, 2012
My boyfriend and I made this soup on Sunday and it has shot to the top of our favorite soups list. It's easy to make, incredibly tasty, so filling and fairly healthy as there is no cream or anything. We made a batch on Sunday and have been eating it for lunch all week.
It works great as a meal on its own because the beans give it so much protein. We also subbed out chicken sausage for ham because it's what we had on hand and it's incredibly tasty with that as well.
I've already shared this recipe with everyone I know and will be making a batch for my parents next time I go home.
Quick tip: If you don't have time to soak the beans using canned beans worked fine in this recipe.
Pros: Yield, Quick, Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Adaptable, Will Make Again
