My blog is turning into outfits and soup. I grew up with soup that came out of a can, so lately I've been pretty excited about making soup from scratch. Canned soup is just fine, but I love the process of making soup. It makes me feel a bit like a wizard concocting a potion, tossing in this spice and that veggie. And a good soup can be so filling.
I've been tending towards soups that are more smooth, pureed, and creamy, but I like that this one is more chunky. I've altered this recipe a bit from my Grandma's original recipe, adding a few more spices and such, just to breathe new life into it. Most pumpkin recipes that I eat this time of year are more on the sweet end of the spectrum, but pumpkin is such a great savory flavor as well. Plus, it gives a nice thick texture to the soup that I really liked. This recipe is really easy, quick, and straightforward, so if you're new to making soup from scratch, this would be a great beginning recipe!
