Who else loves eating and drinking all things pumping this time of year? If you are an all things pumpkin lover then you will want to cozy up with a bowl of this homemade vegan pumpkin soup.

It’s made with vegetables, so not only is it perfect for pumpkin season, it’s all good for you.

There’s no dairy in this soup, making it completely vegan as well. I like to top my soup with a pinch of pumpkin seeds, for a little crunch factor.
