Pumpkin soup for the weekend! Wanted to have something comforting while relaxing at home, hence resort to some pumpkin soup. I wanted to go for something different, in taste, so I created my own version or more like try out something new. I added Turmeric powder in it, which turns out isn’t bad but quite flavourful Don’t know if everyone will like it, but I did served it to my family and they finished every single drop of it.

I wanted to explore something new by not doing it the typical or traditional way where we usually will add in cream into the soup. I wanted something less fattening hence omitted the cream.
