Ingredients for Pumpkin Soup

Onion, Garlic , Ginger
I sauteed my onions, Sliced garlic, and finely sauteed ginger in the soup. I did not blend them further. If you need a smooth textured soup Use an immersion blender and blend the ingredients finally once again.
Crushed Pepper and Chilli Flakes
I used crushed Pepper powder and chili flakes to spice up the soup. You can definitely use oregano, Italian seasoning, or any soup seasonings as you prefer.
