For years now I’ve been experimenting with pumpkin soups as a way to use up all that leftover pumpkin after Halloween but I’ve always been decidedly unsatisfied with the result.

Around Halloween it’s inevitable that I end up with a fair amount of leftover pumpkin, and rather than create a soup or a Pumpkin Pie, I decided this year to branch out and create some different recipes.
