4 Ingredient Pumpkin Soup

Hi again, Amanda from ‘Simple home cook’ here. Today I am sharing one of my weeknight ‘go to ‘ recipes. 

I have been eating this since I was a kid and now own kids ask for it all the time. It only uses only a few ingredients, tastes amazing and is healthy too. What more could you want out of a recipe!

I used to make this recipe by adding milk at the end but I have done away with the milk as it just isn’t necessary. I have included in the recipe as optional for those who feel like they might want to add it.

When taking photos for this recipe I made a double batch so I could freeze half for another night. The perfect recipe in my opinion.
