It’s fall which means it’s time to cook up some Easy Pumpkin Soup. Fall had hit us last week for a couple days and then we had summer weather peek back in. It seems every fall in Cincinnati can be like this. Last week the chilly mornings and evenings really had me in a warm soup mood. Warm soup with bread for dipping is always one of my favorite meals. I will admit when I am in a hurry I will quite often pick up my favorite premade soups from Kroger. Deciding to splurge on Kroger Premade soups is always a really big decision as one container is $4.99 each YIKES! That one container only serves my daughter and I.
Easy Pumpkin Soup Recipe
I always have buyers remorse after purchasing the premade soup. I know that it is so quick and easy to throw together different yummy soups at home. I have shared our Quick & Easy Loaded Potato Soup with you here. This week I decided it was time to whip up some pumpkin recipes for my daughter. She is a real Pumpkin fan. If I surprise her with some food I can always keep on her good side (yes, teenage girls can be cranky with their mommas). Both of us love soup and pumpkin. With the chilly weather this Quick & Easy Pumpkin Soup recipe is perfect to warm us and our taste buds up.
This Pumpkin Soup Recipe is pretty basic made with canned pumpkin, chicken stock, applesauce, onions, milk and nutmeg. Pretty simple even I can whip it up ha ha! And this one will not cost me an arm & a leg to feed the family.
