Best Pumpkin Soup

the best creamy pumpkin soup

This pumpkin soup became a fast favorite for our family. Ever since we bought our immersion blender we’ve been making a lot of soup.

I used to buy canned soups until my husband mentioned how bizarre it was for a tomato soup to be sweet. Then I actually looked at the ingredients on the can, and sure enough… sugar, yep. In tomato soup. Why, just why? There were also lots of other undesirable ingredients so I vowed never to buy canned soups again.

I’m actually so glad that I did because this homemade pumpkin soup is probably the tastiest thing I’ve ever eaten. Not even kidding, here’s how to make it…
