As much as I love winter squash, I'm not a fan of sweet winter squash soups, which is why I love the sound of this Spicy Pumpkin Soup with Cilantro Pepita Pesto from Pinch My Salt. Nicole has given the soup interesting flavors with chiles, smoked paprika, cumin, garlic, and onions, and then she tops it with a pesto that's made from pepitas, garlic, cilantro, Parmesan, lime juice, and olive oil. I'd love this spicy soup for Meatless Monday meal, and I think it would make a great Thanksgiving appetizer soup as well.
