Pumpkin Soup Recipe
This pumpkin soup is yummy, creamy, and so velvety-smooth (not to play favorites, but much smoother than the carrot soup) you won’t believe it. And the pumpkin flavor? Fugghetaboutit. It’ll rock your world in the most wonderful way.
Serve the soup in bowls like normal people…or get fancy-schmancy and serve it in hollowed-out pumpkins of whatever size you’d like. Teeny tiny ones would be darling. But teeny tiny ones aren’t big enough for me and my rather gigantic appetite.
