Pumpkin Soup Recipe
(Kürbissuppe)


An easy pumpkin soup recipe like this is a great fall tradition to start.
Like in many cultures, there are some foods that are used much differently in German cooking than they typically are in the US. Pumpkin is one of those foods. Although you would be hard pressed to find a pumpkin pie while traveling around Germany, a delicious pumpkin soup like this one will be on many Gasthaus menus.
