This simple pumpkin soup recipe will warm your heart on a fall day! It is quick enough to make for an evening meal and rich enough for the holiday table. My easy healthy Pumpkin Soup uses greek yogurt to bring rich flavor and protein to savory bowl of goodness.
I’m not the first or the last person on the “I love pumpkin” bandwagon.
But this soup is different.
Example A: It’s rich and decadent but secretly healthy.
Example B: It’s brimming with spices.
Example C: It’s vegetarian pumpkin soup . No chicken stock here!
Example D: And the creaminess comes from protein packed Greek Yogurt.
(I could go on, but I’ll stop there)
So no, it’s not exactly like every other recipe you’ll see out there.
This simple pumpkin soup recipe is better, if I do say so myself.
Easy healthy pumpkin soup.
Try it for dinner tonight.
I promise you just may like it enough to add it to your Thanksgiving menu.

I found pumpkin spice pumpkin seeds at Trader Joes. They work perfect for the soup!
Are you on the pumpkin bandwagon?
I am sort of on it. I buy a few things pumpkin, but I actually can’t wait for peppermint flavored everything!
