Pumpkin Soup- Super Easy from a Can

I started making this soup years ago to copy a local restaurants, and after becoming frustrated at attempting to cook my own sugar pumpkins with very mixed and time consuming results!! This soup is from pantry ingredients, saves wonderfully and is always a big hit, even for people who say- Gross! Pumpkin soup! Show more

Lovely soup recipe. I kept the onions kind of chunky because my husband feels like he's eating baby food without some chunks in his soup. I also just did 3 TBS of maple syrup and skipped the brown sugar. It was plenty sweet for us. Used two 15 oz cans of organic pumpkin, and homemade turkey stock. Then I topped it with sour cream rather than adding cream, and a sprinkling of fresh parsley. See all activity
