Perfect pumpkin soup. We are so loving Fall. The chilly days, the cosy evenings and everything pumpkin.
Are you reading this post with a pumpkin spice latte in hand? (You should be!)
Everything about this Fall in Paris has been pure magic. The trees in our neighborhood are shedding their golden leaves. The air is slightly cool and the sun shines all day. It is the perfect season to stroll the streets of Paris, enjoy pastries along the Quais de Seine and snap pictures on a Sunday afternoon. It is just cool enough to wear a chunky knit sweater sans jacket. What is your favorite Fall activity?
Ours is making pumpkin recipes. What is your favorite way to enjoy pumpkin? We think this pumpkin soup is about to become your absolute favorite.
Warm pumpkin soup nourishes the soul. It is a yummy combination of creamy pumpkin and a touch of spice. It is healthy, low fat and immune system boosting.
It is easy to prepare and lovely reheated the next day. We love to make a large batch and eat it for several days at a time.
Hugo often makes large portions in the evening so that I will have leftovers for lunch the next day. He often sweetly puts my lunches in little Le Creuset cocottes. I love coming downstairs, opening the fridge and discovering a cocotte filled with this delicious soup at lunchtime. #besthusbandever
