Hello... Fallon of Sage + Sparkle here this Monday morning & I'm so excited to share a pumpkin soup recipe with you! You see, I love pumpkin... okay, I'm obsessed.  Every year, for the past four years (this is my first year blogging about it) I have done "12 Weeks of Pumpkin", where I make a new pumpkin dish weekly, starting in September, ending after Thanksgiving!  With Halloween coming up - it also seemed quite appropriate!

I like to do a mix of sweet and savory dishes and today I want to share with you one of my favorite savory options, one that has a little bit of kick. Fall is the perfect time for soup, and what better way to enjoy a soup, than with pumpkin.  What I love about soup, is that it's the perfect thing to make and then freeze and have yummy little lunches to take with you to work our enjoy on a night when your crunched for time.  This soup is hearty, healthy, and delicious... and super easy to make.  Give it a try and please, be sure to let me know how you like it.
