Pumpkin Soup Recipe

To me, fall doesn’t start until I’ve made my first batch of this pumpkin soup recipe. Keep your PSL and give me a bowl of this soup any day of the week. You can use canned pumpkin for this or make your own pumpkin puree. Either way you end up with a delicious pot of soup. Add a slice of homemade bread fresh from the oven or bread maker and you’re all set for a filling lunch or a simple weekday supper.

Even my husband who isn’t a big pumpkin fan likes this simple soup. The addition of tomato tones down the earthy flavor of the pumpkin puree. Of course you are welcome to substitute your favorite squash puree or even sweet potato. Remember, this is your soup and you can tweak any recipe as needed to suit your and your family’s taste buds.
