Pumpkin and Black Bean Soup

I was in a black bean soup kind of mood and stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest. It was quite good, but next time I think I’ll add a little spice to the batch to tone down the strong pumpkin flavor.

I will definitely be making this for the upcoming cold fall nights.
