Adding vegetables creates a pumpkin soup that is savory without the cream! Read on to get this vegetarian and vegan friendly recipe!
One of my son’s favorite fall books is Pumpkin Soup. It is always fun to make some pumpkin soup of our own and read the book. This season I wanted to make a pumpkin soup that was not heavy with cream. We happened to have a lot of root vegetables on hand so I thought- let’s make it vegetarian and vegan friendly!
