#FoodieFriday -- Skinny Pumpkin Soup
Posted on September 19 2014
It's finally fall, y'all! Well technically the first day of fall is Tuesday, September 23rd but let's just consider this a little pre fall cooking. Fall is by far my favorite season -- the leaves falling off the trees, the crisp breeze that makes you want to add a chic infinity scarf to almost every outfit and let us not forget the inevitable "pumpkin spiced" everything that seems to pop up come autumn. Along with the cooler temperatures comes the urge for cozy cooking. Soup just speaks "fall weather" to me, there's something so comforting about a big warm bowl of soup. So, in conjunction with fall, pumpkins and soup, I give you "Skinny Pumpkin Soup" from the ladies over at Spinach4Breakfast. What I love about this particular recipe -- besides the shockingly low caloric intake -- is the simplicity of the ingredients. I found almost all of the components already in my kitchen, except for the pumpkin puree which I snatched up from Trader Joe's. This recipe serves three, but if you can manage to savor some leftovers I highly recommend it as this one tastes just as great the next day!
