Everybody loves a good hearty soup.
Especially when it’s cold and you need something to warm up.
This pumpkin vegetable soup is a new favorite of mine.
There are two ways of eating it, at least in Ecuador there are.
You are free to invent other forms also.
My son’s favorite is eating it with popcorn, which is added to many vegetable soups here.
I rather prefer to eat it with grated cheese.
The cheese gives the soup even a better taste, at least in my opinion.
The soup is very simple to do and perfect for those weekdays when you need a quick, but healthy and filling, dinner.
It also keeps its delicious taste after being frozen.
So, if you make a bigger batch, you can freeze some of it, and have it always handy whenever you might need a quick lunch.
Then it depends on you, if you rather eat if with popcorn or cheese.
Or maybe invent another way to enjoy it!
