Julia recently uploaded one of the fantastic recipes from her blog to her profile. And let me tell you, this is a must-make recipe for fall: Chipotle Pumpkin Soup. Julia describes it as “a sweet and spicy pumpkin soup,” which is “sure to impress your friends and taste buds!” The recipe is full of flavor, veggies and it’s low in fat. Give Julia’s pumpkin soup a try and let me know what you think…
