Someone made a comment on the pumpkin slices post that they wanted to see some savory pumpkin dishes that weren’t soup. I posted the oreccheitte the other day in hopes to answer that request, but unfortunately could not come up with anything more creative beyond that, and am now posting a pumpkin soup.But really, those cans of puree just beg to be baked into a soup. How could I ignore that? When something is practically a soup already, and all it needs is a pinch of this and a swig of that, I say let the soup be made! It will save me at least 500 sit-ups, which is what I would be doing if I were to make the can of puree into the other obvious choice: pumpkin pie.Oooh, that would be good.
