Asheh Kadoo Tanbal ~ Persian Pumpkin Soup

Asheh Kadoo Tanbal ~ Persian Pumpkin Soup

I am amused by how pumpkin is referred to in Farsi. How can you keep a straight face when you say Kadoo Tanbal??!! Kadoo in farsi means zucchini or squash. Tanbal in Farsi means lazy. So pumpkin in Farsi is Lazy Squash! I do wonder where and why it got this name. This recipe is very timely this time of the year since Pumpkins are abound. For those who love pumpkin soup, I have no doubts that you will love this version as it’s different from any other recipe out there.

The inspiration for this recipe comes from Mrs. Montazami’s cookbook. The original recipe calls for butternut squash. It think it’s just as delicious with pumpkin. I made a few changes to the recipe  which has made it over the top good. I hope that you will enjoy this recipe as much as we have. This is a very comforting hearty soup on a cold day, and certainly a different twist on the regular pureed pumpkin soup.
