Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup
This pumpkin soup is probably one of the easiest soups I have ever made. It only takes a handful of ingredients and minimal prep. Less than 30 minutes of simmer time and it is ready to serve.

This soup makes a great appetizer to your holiday dinner, or as a main course on it’s own on a cold winter night. It will instantly warm you right up. Plus, you can’t go wrong with pumpkin and all the amazing health benefits that come along with it!
