  1. Having this pumpkin soup in the midnight time is the best. Instead eat snack when I work, this soup is really fit for me, especially because this soup is really healthy :)

  2. Black Bean Pumpkin Soup — wow, what a fantastic item for a warming holiday delight. I love this kind of comfort food with a healthy basis. Would love to feature (with credit linking to you, of course) on my gluten free blog ( http://www.whatisglutenfree.net ). Thanks and keep up the good work.

    • Glad you like the recipe, I love a hearty, comforting bowl of soup! Go ahead and feature the recipe on your site. I served mine with pita chips (which aren’t gluten free but, you could easily serve with some homemade baked corn chips or some purchased rice and bean chips, or even some gluten-free cornbread, yum!)

  3. I think that Blackbean soup was good these Christmas because of the weather. Thanks for sharing the recipe you have, my family will totally love it.
