"Everyone loves pumpkin. This is a easy, but hearty soup recipe to please the masses! There is no cinnamon in this dish, but there are savory spices that you’ll love like cumin and ginger. You can use pumpkins, but butternut squash and acorn squash are also delicious in this recipe. Try this recipe out as a starter or just pair it with a salad. Pumpkin and apple are a classic combination. It would be lovely with this Apple Fennel salad at lunch."
