Delicata Creamy Soup Recipe

Have you ever grown something in your garden that ended up being not what you thought you were growing? Sometimes tags in on the new plants from seed get mixed up and you may end up growing something different.   Today I’m sharing a new recipe that was shared with me after I grew a strange looking ‘pumpkin’.

If I accidentally grow the ‘wrong’ thing and it turns out as this did .. I am all for it!  Below is the soup I ended up creating with the mystery produce.
