Pumpkin soup is one of the delicious soups. You can make a full meal out of that after adding extra vegetables in to it. When you add extra vegetables it tastes so nice giving extra flavour to it.

This can be a good winter warmer and a vegetarian dish too. If you are a vegan try leaving butter and cream and instead use olive oil and rice cream or coconut milk.

Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management. My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner" I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self. As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
