This is one of my favorite soups and I've been making it really often during the past few weeks. It's hearty, filling and really delicious. This would make a great starter for your valentine's dinner if you are cooking dinner at home. But really, you should try it even if you don't have someone to share it with. After all, everyone can enjoy a big bowl of delicious pumpkin soup.
