Simple pumpkin soup recipe for Halloween

Pumpkin carving is a Halloween tradition that many of us here at Sophie Allport look forward to. It's a fun activity that brings together the whole family, young and old, for a spot of friendly competition. Whilst the main event is all about creating a spooky masterpiece, we can't help but get excited about trying new recipes with our leftover pumpkin. This year our friends at Seasoned Courses sent us a quick and easy pumpkin soup recipe that literally tastes like autumn in a bowl. If you're looking for a way to use up all of the leftover pumpkins, try out the seasonal recipe below:
