What’s better on a cold day than a delicious, soup? A delicious soup that’s also quick and easy, like this Pumpkin Soup!
We are officially in the soup season! This Pumpkin Soup is one of the many soup recipes I’ll be sharing with you. It’s one of my favorites because I usually have most of the ingredients in my kitchen, it’s easy to make, and pumpkin is such a fall flavor so it’s perfect for this time of the year.
For this recipe, you can use your own homemade pumpkin puree or store-bought pumpkin puree. I personally think homemade puree is the better option because there are no added ingredients but if you’re short on time, store-bought absolutely works.
To make your own pumpkin puree, you just need to pre-roast pumpkin and blend it, as instructed in the recipe.
This Pumpkin Soup works as an entrée or a side dish. I like to have it one night for dinner and serve it up the next few days as a side at lunch with a salad or sandwich. Like most soups, I find it tastes best on the second and third day!
How To Make Pumpkin Soup:
Step 1: Begin by heating butter in a large pan over medium-high heat.
Step 2: Add in the chopped onions and saute until soft.
Step 3: Stir in the spices and let simmer another minute.
Step 4: Add in bone broth.
Step 5: Add 2 cups of pumpkin puree, homemade or store-bought, into the pan.
Step 6: Add salt and pepper to taste.
Step 7: Bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 20-30 minutes.
Step 8: Garnish with parsley before serving.
Can I freeze this Pumpkin Soup?
Since this Pumpkin Soup is not cream-based, you can absolutely freeze it. It will also keep in the fridge for several days.
Should Pumpkin Soup be served hot or cold?
Both! I typically serve it hot the first night and will occasionally serve it cold, especially if I’m making it in the summer.
