Creamy Thyme and Allspice Flavored Pumpkin Soup!

Nowadays, Pumpkins are everywhere. So made this thick and creamy pumpkin soup for lunch. This is an easy healthy, and creamy pumpkin soup. I made it with a farm-fresh pumpkin that is really flavorful. I also used allspice and thyme to flavor the soup. Thyme has a fresh lemony aroma that makes the soup refreshing and yummy. I also added nutmeg and heavy cream to this soup. Nutmeg and cream go well together. The aroma of nutmeg gives a gentle aroma to the soup.
