Author Notes: What in the world do you do with that one left over can of pumpkin puree from the holidays? Well naturally you make yet another creamy and savory dish. Come Thanksgiving, in for a penny apparently means in for 6 or 7 pounds.
This soup is a rich, creamy, savory, and spicy soup that I used to crave growing up in Minnesota. It takes extraordinarily little effort and I hope you enjoy! - InSearchOfLostThyme
