Pumpkin Soup

| 10/10/2013 3:40:00 PM

The Texas Pioneer WomanPumpkin soup is a healthy, creamy soup with a hint of tanginess. When we think of soup we think of chunks of vegetables and meat in a broth. This pumpkin soup has lots of creamed pumpkin and a bit of grated carrots topped off with sprinkles of feta cheese and caramelized bacon.

As with any recipe you can always substitute some ingredients to meet your dietary restrictions or to use up what you have in the pantry. I hope you enjoy this pumpkin soup!

TPW, Awwwh, I love fall and soup. Your pumpkin soup looks yummy. Very interesting with the garlic and bacon. I might just have to try some this fall. I like your heating stove as well. I always wanted one but alas, I don't think that's going to happen any time soon. One thing that's needed with a stove is a good source of free wood which I don't have yet. ***** Have a great fall soup day.
