I don’t know about you, but in the Fall months, I like to curl up with a bowl of my favorite soup and delve into a good book. As much as I enjoy the traditional chicken noodle, sometimes I just want something creamier. This is where a pumpkin soup recipe from Allrecipes would come in handy. This recipe makes 7-10 servings, so get a Halloween party going and enjoy this festive creamy soup!
- 6 cups chicken stock
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 4 cups pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 5 whole black peppercorns
Heat up the stock, salt, pumpkin, onion, thyme, garlic, and peppercorns. Bring to a boil and then reduce the mixture into a low simmer for 30 minutes uncovered.
With a food processor or blender, puree single serving portions of the mixture at a time until all is pureed.
Return the mixture back into the pot and bring to a boil. Then reduce back into a low simmer for another 30 minutes, uncovered. Stir in the heavy whipping cream.
Pour into soup bowls and serve! Garnish the top with some fresh parsley for additional embellishment!
