Pumpkin Soup–The Spicy Version

Post by community member:

I processed a pretty big pumpkin this year and I had loads of puree to play with. See how I make my pumpkin puree here.


I’ve been busy playing with pumpkin soup recipes. Pumpkin soup is made by combining pureed pumpkin with broth. It can be served hot or cold and is a popular Thanksgiving dish here in the U.S.

My husband and I love pumpkin and squash soups. The kids….not so much, so I make small batches. This is a recipe for a pumpkin soup blended with Indian spices that we really like. Feel free to substitute any kind of yellow winter squash for the pumpkin.
