Pumpkin-Carrot Spiced Soup!

For more cooking check out our InstaStories  - follow little island studios on Instagram

We are so very pleased to partner with Simply Organic Spices! 

 Autumn is my most favorite season! Everything autumn is absolutely blissful - crisp weather, bright leaves and everything pumpkin.  Pumpkin is the ultimate comfort food and can be best in it's simplest form - pumpkin soup!  When I first learned to cook, I never made soup. For some reason, I thought soup was this complicated mix of ingredients.  I could not have been more wrong. Soup is Simple and Spice is Everything!  Recipes for pumpkin soup vary, but are essentially the same - broth, spice and pumpkin.  For this pumpkin soup we have added loads of orange carrots for the bright color and nutrition - we can always use more veggies.
