Halloween pumpkin soup recipe!

Here is my delicious pumpkin soup to make with your carving scraps! This soup is warming, sweet and perfect for the colder months.

I decided to leave this as a chunky soup to add more texture, but feel free to blend it up if that is how you like it. If you do decide to blend it, I recommend adding 2 tbsp yogurt to add more creaminess.
