Looking for a simple, illustrated recipe for pumpkin soup? You found the right page! Maybe you've never had pumpkin soup? It's really quite good - even kids like it! It's one of those foods, like carrot cake, that sounds bad, but tastes great! I haven't met anyone yet who hasn't liked this recipe! As an added plus, this pumpkin soup is all natural and low fat!
Yes, you can used canned pumpkin.. .but how do you know what it even is? It looks nasty (no insult meant to Libby's). But look at the fresh, bright color of fresh cooked pumpkin (there is NOTHING added to it, that's its natural color). It's easy to make your own from a fresh pumpkin - just click here for directions to prepare from a fresh pumpkin!
1 pint of half-and-half (I use the fat free type to keep this healthy) - If you can't get "Half and Half", here are some substitutes:
And the rest of the ingredients:
I use an electric chopper or food processor until the pieces are about 1/8 in size.
Saute the onions, celery and the grated carrots in butter until tender.
Add remaining ingredients except half-and-half. Cover and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Note: If you want to freeze the soup for use later, stop now and freeze it. When you are ready to use it, defrost it, heat it up and resume with step 6!
Add half-and-half, and heat (on the stove on medium, while stirring, or a minute in the microwave). Serve warm. Makes 6-8 small servings.
Comments from a visitor on November 19, 2008: "Hi - I am an Englishman, living in Vienna, Austria - how's that for starters! Tomorrow I am going to make your pumpkin pie, this looks like a great recipe and I will let you know how it turns out. One word to add about the pumpkin soup - it is very popular here in Austria and served with a dribble of pumpkin seed oil on top, which is delicious and referred to here as 'Styrian Gold', since it comes from the province of Styria. If you can get it in the US, do try, it's worth it! I had to take some over on my last trip, I come over every summer to see friends and get up to date on recipes!! all the best, "
