Easy Gourmet Pumpkin Soup Pin It
It is time to clear fridge. This week will travel back for Chinese New Year celebration. What to do with the ½ pumpkin that I have keep for such long time? The easy way is to transform it into pumpkin soup. Instead of adding cream I used milk and coconut milk. If have leftover soup just divide into individual portion and store in freezer.
Easy Gourmet Pumpkin Soup Since Valentine is around the corner I create some heart shapes with the coconut milk that I added in my soup :) What better way of serving this easy pumpkin soup with fragrant toasted garlic bread?  Wishing Happy Valentine in advance!
