Light pumpkin soup recipe

Looking for a lighter alternative to traditionally creamy pumpkin soup?

It’s that time of the year again – pumpkin season! This means pumpkin everything, from pie to lattes to classic pumpkin soup.

Traditionally pumpkin soup is made with butter, cream and stock, but these ingredients are not needed to make a delicious tasting soup. Try this lighter alternative.
