Disney’s Pumpkin Soup is the third recipe in our Holiday Side Dish week comes from Epcot’s Sunshine Seasons restaurant in Walt Disney World. When we visited the Living with The Land attraction on our trip to Florida, we truly enjoyed seeing the greenhouses and learning about alternative ways to grow gardens. We even did the Behind the Seeds tour and had the best time, I highly recommend it. When you order this dish at Disney, they use some of the produce grown in the attraction.
The flavors are so smooth and bold. This dish is a perfect starter to your meal and the recipe is quick and easy. Don’t forget those pumpkin seeds, they are delicious with the soup.
You can serve this up with your favorite holiday main dish and add homemade cranberry jelly and ambrosia salad. Our choose from the recipes I shared earlier this week, Disney’s Apple Butter or Disney’s Pepper Bacon Mac and Cheese.
