A creamy pumpkin soup flavoured with thyme. Not very popular with many, this vegetable is as versatile, nutritious and flavourful as any other. I am sure this vegetable will gain its share of praise with this soup. Simple to make this soup tastes just delicious as is mildly flavoured with herbs and low fat milk.

Very filling, onions add mild sweet taste whereas pepper adds the final finishing touch to the taste. Pumpkin is also rich vitamin a, calcium and fibre, so this is undeniably a healthy potion!

I hate Pumkin but was advised to eat for health reasons. This recipe saved me from eating that atrocious pumpkin vegetable preparation. This soup is rich and creamy but healthy at the same time! its not too filling and very flavoursome. Worth making!
