It’s that time of year when I start wearing a hoodie around the house, and make coffee by the pot instead of the cup. When it starts to get cool, there is nothing more cozy to stave off the cold weather blues than a bowl of soup. Especially one that is so good for you!

This Harvest Pumpkin Soup is made from scratch, using canned pumpkin puree instead of fresh.  I have made it both ways and actually prefer canned pumpkin’s flavor. Either way, this soup recipe is hearty and delicious, and packed with vitamins and fiber.  Top it off with pistachios for extra crunch!

Instead of pistachios, why not try your soup topped with:

  • Cheddar popcorn
  • Toasted Walnuts
  • Garlic croutons
  • Shredded Parmesan
  • Herb Couscous
  • Roasted broccoli
