Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Sautéed Kale

There’s nothing better than way to use up your fall pumpkins in a delicious and nutritious way. I love that pumpkins can be decor and food as well!!

Pumpkins are an excellent source of vitamin A (beta-carotene, which is the plant-based form that your body can convert and use) and also a great source of potassium and vitamin C. So it is a fantastic food to add to your diet to support your eyes and immune function.

Check out my easy way to use up your pumpkin in the fall or any time of year.


The addition of kale is an inspiration from Minimalist Baker.
