Pumpkin Soup is a healthy bowl of soup . It’s a very easy and simple recipe that can be prepared within 30 minutes with only few basic ingredients. General they do add fresh cream to pumpkin soup ,but in this recipe I have not added any cream other than garnishing. The taste if this no cream pumpkin soup is as good as cream based soup .

This recipe is very light on stomach , low on calories and easy to digest. You can make this soup for your light dinner along with croutons and a slice of garlic bread toast.

I wanted to prepare a healthy bowl of soup ,so i have not added any fresh cream . And  this Pumpkin Soup is almost there in all my friend’s diet plan as a part of their weight loss diet plan. So “BIG NO” for fresh creams and heavy creams here.

One more Pumpkin Soup recipe, I often do is Thai Style Pumpkin soup by adding Coconut Milk. I’ll be sharing the recipe soon , even Thai Pumpkin Soup is very nutritious.

Pumpkin is a very nutritious veggie ,adding it to our diet is very beneficial .Make a rule to eat pumpkin at least ,twice a week in any of the form.
