Easy Pumpkin Soup

It is Fall which means pumpkin recipes GALORE!!! I have seen so many pumpkin recipes lately that it has made me hungry for something pumpkin. So, my first Pumpkin quest had to be in the form of a soup.

My quick and easy pumpkin soup is now a new favorite at my house. It is both thick and silky, and best of all it is so quick and easy to make.

I must admit that I cheated a little bit here though. How did I cheat you ask? I did not use fresh pumpkin, I used canned pumpkin instead. I know, I know! Please don’t judge! I thought about using fresh pumpkin, but when I went to the grocery store to look at fresh pumpkins, all they had was big ones, and I didn’t need that much pumpkin, and also I just couldn’t see myself carving into such a big pumpkin.

But, if you want to use fresh pumpkin for this recipe, you sure can!

I made some pretty yummy Turkey Panini’s to go with my Pumpkin soup. I thought about giving you a bonus recipe here, but I decided at the last minute that I am going to remake. better yet, makeover my Panini recipe and share it with you in a couple of weeks. Cause hey, you guys deserve the best!
