You will never believe that this creamy, dreamy, fall pumpkin soup is vegan! There are a few secrets hiding inside every bite, the first is Chardonnay.

 

 

Hooray for Chardonnay! Secondly, the creaminess of this pumpkin soup comes from light, coconut milk. Hints of all-spice, ginger and coconut are in every smooth and thick bite. Crunchy, flavorful pops of corn, carrots, cannellini beans, and pumpkin make this fall meal full of texture.

 

 

 

 

I used 4-5″ mini pumpkins as bowls, for that perfect fall look. While hollowing the pumpkins out, save the seeds and roast them in the oven for the perfect garnish!
