Pumpkin soup is one of the things I look forward to most about the autumn. It makes breaking up with the summer a little easier knowing that I can cosy down with a bowl of pumpkin soup in front of the fire. However with the Indian Summer we have been having here in the UK I have wondered if that day would ever arrive. (Not that I am complaining, I would keep the Indian Summer going until March if I could!).

Pumpkin soup is one of the easiest, quickest soups to make. Pumpkins are a great source of fibre and essential vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C and Zinc which help the immune system and skin. So if you are feeling a bit under the weather and could do with a healthy glow, go get yourself some pumpkins!
This is a very basic pumpkin recipe so feel free to spice it up however you like. We sometimes add chilli powder and turmeric for a fiery kick. I used a culinary pumpkin (not a carving pumpkin) which is just a small pumpkin and can be purchased from most mainstream supermarkets.
