Pumpkin is not only synonymous with Halloween, but it also signifies the official arrival of fall. What better way to celebrate the season and National Pumpkin Day than with pumpkin soup? Decadent and warm, its bright color will keep away the pre-winter blues.

Try Rachael’s Pumpkin Soup With Chili Cran-Apple Relish for a scrumptious meal in less than 45 minutes. The natural sweetness of the pumpkin is enhanced with cinnamon and nutmeg, while the chili powder and hot sauce liven up each bite. The apple, onion, cranberry and honey make a great relish all on their own, but tastes even better when mixed into the soup.
