gnocchi must not like me very much, coz i tried making it twice and failed. first time i mashed the potatoes using the hand blender and they turned out too watery. second time i added too little egg and the gnocchi separated upon boiling! and with the sage leaves already bought (planned to make potato gnocchi with burnt sage butter initially) i had to think of something else.
i singled out a few pumpkin recipes but settled for the soup in the end coz its really really easy to make. while the soup was pretty decent i didn't think it was that spectacular. might be the type of pumpkin i used, local ones which are dirt cheap. at 10 cents a 100g, 800g of pumpkin only cost me 80 cents *chuckles* am gonna try japanese pumpkin or butternut squash in future to see it makes any difference. and maybe roasting the pumpkin prior to cooking might make the soup more fragrant.
