Pumpkin & Rosemary Soup



@magicorganicsco have been having a surplus of pumpkin, so I decided to do another pumpkin recipe. Also it was specifically requested by a good friend of mine.


I find many pumpkin soups quite boring with an overwhelming sweetness to them. I also have an abundance of dried rosemary in the pantry (thanks mom!) that I needed to get through and they both work perfectly together!
