Apple and Pumpkin Soup with Sausage

It’s been a long time since I’ve gotten creative in the kitchen…a really long time. But yesterday, I decided to honor the start of fall by whipping up a fall-tastic soup (or if we’re being totally honest, I hadn’t gone grocery shopping yet and was trying tomake something out of the random ingredients in my kitchen. apple & pumpkin soup

Enter Apple and Pumpkin Soup with Sausage. This soup puts all my favorite fall flavors into one delicious bowl. It’s got a little bit of salty from the sausage, some savory spices, and a hint of sweetness from the apples. I think it would be good with a bit of gouda or extra sharp cheddar sprinkled on top for a bit of extra creaminess. Plus it’s quick and easy to make, for the nights just you need to get dinner on the table.
