When the weather turns colder what more could you wish for than some warming Pumpkin and Carrot Soup.

You can whip this one up in under an hour and it’s sure to get you in the mood for winter festivities.

Some people waste time and effort removing the skin from winter vegetables like squashes and pumpkins. It really isn’t necessary, simply wash and cook with the skin on.

It blends well and even when eating the vegetable whole, you won’t notice the skin. Save yourself some time and to be honest lots of frustration, just leave it on!!

Be sure to fry the vegetables well in the first stage of the recipe. This will help develop a deeper flavor. You can also add some of the following for an even tastier pumpkin and carrot soup:
