Mmm. Soup and cool weather. I am looking forward to both. Thanks for a great recipe and providing the metric measurements too! My daughter-in-law thanks you for the extra effort. Pumpkin just says autumn to me like nothing else in the edible realm does.

No - I don't eat anything orange. Or in odd numbers. A little OCD going on here I guess.

I LOVE homemade pumpkin soup...vegan-style, of course. ;) said...

I've had my mind on soup recipes for a week or so. I think it's slightly cooler temps. The website Smitten kitchen had a number of good recipes.
