  3. ADD FROZEN GREEN PEAS and again bring to a simmer for another 5-7 minutes. Lastly, add thyme and season with salt and pepper. Stir and serve hot.
Recipe Notes

Dicing a pumpkin is not a lot and requires caution. When I dice one, I use a part for this soup and freeze the rest. When I want to make this soup again, I just grab the previously diced pumpkin from the freezer, which is way less work.
