In honor of fall (my favorite season) and Halloween, I had hoped to post a couple of pumpkin recipes this week.
What would a site named The Scrumptious Pumpkin be without a healthy dose of pumpkin dishes?
So today I’m posting the most velvety rich pumpkin soup.
If you’ve never tried a pumpkin soup, I very highly recommend it and here’s how I would sell it to you. This soup is:
- creamy, filling, and decadent
- full of fall flavors
- lightly sweet with a bit of spice from curry powder (and the slightest hints of cinnamon, ginger, and creamy coconut)
Bonus: this soup happens to be vegan, it packs in a lot of healthy nutrients, and it’s ready in about 30 minutes.
This filling pumpkin soup is the perfect comfort food remedy on a dark, chilly evening after a long day.
The richness from the coconut milk and the slight hint of heat from the curry powder will warm you through and through.
