Creamy pumpkin soup recipe:

Fill a saucepan a couple inches from the top with cubes of pumpkin, then add whole milk just to the top of the pumpkin. Boil until soft. Let it cool a bit (I put mine in the freezer for a few minutes) then puree in a blender. This way you don’t have to take the skin off as it is pureed into unnoticeable bits. Add salt to taste and enjoy your delicious soup!
