Pumpkin Soup- Steps

Pumpkin is one of the most popular ingredients to use during the fall season, both for its seasonal appeal and flavor, and for the fact that it is healthy and low-fat. For example, pumpkin can be used as a substitute for more fattening ingredients in baked food items, like cakes and cupcakes. It also has a variety of health benefits, including omega-3 fats, improving prostate health and gut health, including zinc and magnesium, and being great for post-menopause and liver health.
