It sounds pretty quick and simple to whip up too. Isn’t it a beautiful dish?

I bet you can serve this one throughout the holidays too. And I love that it’s keto-friendly too.

The Best Creamy Pumpkin Soup Recipe

I’m in charge of a side dish this month, so I’m bringing my favorite creamy pumpkin soup recipe.

Have you tried pumpkin soup before?

It is so yummy good and it’s perfect for any fall brunch or dinner party, even Thanksgiving itself!

But the best part?

It can made ahead of time and served later. I love a dish that can be prepared early so I can do all of the other things and just heat it up!

My family loves this recipe and I know you will to, so give it a try!
