IT looks beautifully creamy! I haven't used butterbeans for ages - I think they sometimes get forgotten about but I'm thinking of getting some soon now.

That's gorgeous and I think the idea of using pumpkin is wonderful. That's very much for sharing with MLLA.

What a fantastic soup - I nearly always use BNS in place of pumpkin so good to see some recipes for it, where it is given the pride of place!

Thanks for sharing with #creditcrunchmunch
