Pumpkin and almond soup

     Soups are one really so heartwarming on a cold winter night. I was not always a soup loving person as I find it very filling ....killing one's appetite. But yes on a cold night a warm soup with soup sticks or toasts or garlic breads are good enough to fill a hungry soul. I made this soup and we all fell in love with soups. Prisha, my daughter is always ready to have it.This soup is so soft, smooth and creamy and very simple but very high on taste and nutrition.
Chopped pumpkin                            2 cups
Chopped onion                                 1 no
Garlic peeled                                     4-6 pods
