Canned Pumpkin Soup

soup1

Over the years, I have made many blended vegetable soups.  I have learned that if you pair pretty much any vegetable with an onion, and chicken broth, cook and blend together, and you will have great soup.  I swear!

If you keep canned pumpkin in your pantry, you can make an ” Easy Peasy” pumpkin soup in just a few minutes with only a few ingredients from your pantry.  What a great weeknight fall dinner!

I made a big batch.  My husband is currently in China….But I am having a baby in December!  I have decided that I need to start stocking up my freezer with meals to have on hand once the babe is born!

After tasting this soup, I thought it needed a little sweetness to it.  I added 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.  There. Perfect:)
