Bean Soup with pumpkin and zucchini is one of those meals that warm you to the bone. This soup is full of vegetables and tastes so good.
Soup is a favorite dinner for my family. I love being able to throw a few ingredients in a pot or slow cooker knowing that within a few hours a warm and comforting meal will be on the table.
Since Fall has arrived, I have been making more soups. This bean soup with pumpkin and zucchini is full of chunks of fresh pumpkin and pieces of zucchini. I find it to be the perfect soup for the end of Summer and beginning of Fall.
Big and I do our best to grow as much produce as we can. There are things, like pumpkins, that we just can’t grow due to the size of our suburban lot.
The tomatoes in this recipe are from our garden as well as the zucchini. It was the last zucchini in the garden and had gotten rather large. I only used half of it for this soup. I shared the other half with my daughter.
When you get ready to make this soup, please note that the pumpkin used is a pie pumpkin (or at times called a sugar pumpkin). Pie pumpkins are smaller than the pumpkin most of us use for carving at Halloween.
