Pumpkin Cannellini Bean Soup

I got the idea from this recipe from I added the additional spices, because I thought it needed a small flavor boost, but otherwise, this is their recipe. This is perfect for fall - - it's creamy, light, but filling. The extra spices give this the smell of fall cooking and the pumpkin clinches the fall theme!

Pumpkin Cannellini Bean Soup

1 can pumpkin puree
1 can coconut milk (stirred to mix)
1 can cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can vegetable broth (or 2 cups of homemade)
1 tsp dried sage
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
Additional spices: pinch of nutmeg, cayenne pepper or paprika, ground thyme

Combine all ingredients except salt and pepper into a large sauce pan over medium heat and stir to combine. Heat (but do not boil) for approximately 10 minutes, or until warm. Stir in salt and pepper to taste. Add additional spices for a little flavor kick!!
