Pumpkin Soup

What are you going to do with that jack-o-lantern?
Use it?  Compost it?  Toss it?

One of my favorite ways of eating pumpkin is pumpkin soup.

Here is my super easy recipe for pumpkin soup.

Pumpkin Soup

1/2c. Sliced Onions
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
Olive Oil
1 tsp. Curry Powder
1/2 tsp. Tumeric
1/2 tsp. Cumin Seeds
4c. Pureed Pumpkin
4c. Vegetable or Chicken Stock
Pinch of Red Chili Flakes
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Go once around the pot with olive oil.  Saute onions, garlic, and spices until tender and fragrant.
Add pumpkin puree and stock.  Stir well.
Heat through.  Add salt & pepper to taste.

See, I told you it was super easy.  It's very tasty served with naan bread but this batch was served with Beerscotti.

  4. Love your quick and easy approach to pumpkin soup :-)

    1. Quick & easy is all I can manage some nights which makes this a perfect healthy supper. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I've never made or even had pumpkin soup. I like all of the spices you have going on--bet it is very fragrant.
    Thank you for stopping in and linking this week!

    1. I really like pumpkin soup and have made it all sorts of ways, with cream or apples or a different spice profile, but I like this recipe best because of the Indian flavors, which are indeed, very fragrant.

  6. Pumpkin soup is just the best. I have found roasting the pumpkin first gives it an even better flavour. Cheers

    1. You are so right Ms. Carole! I had puree in my freezer that needed to be used so that's what I used here but if you are starting this recipe with a fresh pumpkin then roasting it is fabulous.
