Pumpkin and Spring Onion soup



Pumpkin is a kind of sweeter in taste but they are very low in fat and low calorie vegetable, also they are a rich source of potassium. And they are good anti-oxidants with beta-carotene in them. Pumpkin was sitting in my fridge for more than a week. Before expire, I decided to make a soup with spring onion. Let’s start the recipe.
