Pumpkin Soup / SBT / Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

I’m a little sad today!  🙁  Today is the last recipe that you will get from Skinny Bitch Tuesday.  I enjoyed meeting and getting to know the girls, Claire, Stephanie and Michelle.  For our last recipe, Stephanie chose Pumpkin Soup.  It’s a perfect recipe to say goodbye to Skinny Bitch Tuesday and a wonderful welcome into the Fall season.

This is the first time I ever made pumpkin soup and I am pleasantly surprised on how yummy it is!!  Well maybe not, after all I am obsessed with pumpkin!  Remember a couple of weeks ago I was making Pumpkin Puree and I said I wanted to go savory?  This is what I used the pumpkin puree for.  I will admit I really, really changed up the recipe from the cookbook.  The cookbook called for a 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, plus almond milk and white wine.  I didn’t add any of those ingredients into my soup.  I like my soup more on the savory side, rather than sweet.

I decided to add chicken stock, coconut milk and sage.  This soup was creamy, smooth, and savory.  I really loved this soup, it was a perfect addition to my dinner, which was my Turkey, Cranberry and Pear Panini.  It was the perfect Fall meal.
