Pumpkin Soup

Print Friendly and PDF
Have some leftover pumpkins, like me? We didn't get all of our pumpkins carved this year. Our garden was productive. Rather than waste them we decided to try & cook them.

To cook it- cut it into pieces, remove seeds & pulp & steam it until soft. Then just mash it up.
Here's an easy recipe for you.


Simple Pumpkin Soup


1/2 cup onion
3 tbsp. butter
2 cups mashed cooked pumpkin
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup half and half or fat free half and half.

Chop the onions and gently brown with butter in a pan. Put mashed pumpkin with onions in pan. Add the salt, sugar, nutmeg and pepper. Slowly add chicken broth and heat thoroughly, but do not boil. To serve, pour into a tureen and add the cream. Makes 4 to 6 small servings.
