Pumpkin Series: Creamy Pumpkin Soup

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!

Ingredients

  • 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!

Here are some extra items you can garnish your pumpkin soup with for a gourmet look!

  • chopped green onion
