Simple creamy pumpkin soup – a super easy to make a creamy soup that’s perfect for warm and perfect for fall. A gluten-free recipe that is suitable for a ketogenic diet and paleo.
This pumpkin soup has only 4 ingredients and some spices that give an amazing warm flavor. As usual, I’m sharing super simple keto recipes, that are low in carbs and insanely delicious.
I love roasting pumpkin and especially for this soup I recommend using homemade pumpkin puree. This step takes a few minutes more but it’s worth the effort.
The four ingredients you will need to make pumpkin soup are probably already in your pantry:
- 15 oz pumpkin puree, canned or homemade
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 1/3 cup whipping cream
- 1 tbsp butter or olive oil
- Seasonings: 1/2 tsp pink salt; 1/2 tsp pepper; 1/2 tsp garlic powder; 1/2 tsp fresh thyme; 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN SOUP
- To make this easy pumpkin soup that’s very low in carbs and keto friendly grab a large saucepan and all the ingredients. I’m a huge fan of making my pumpkin puree from scratch. But don’t worry, canned pumpkin puree is great to make this soup. Caramelize the onion in butter or olive oil over medium heat add the butter and chopped onion. Allow onion to soften for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Next on the list is to bring all the ingredients in the pot: the pumpkin puree, chicken broth, and the seasonings. Let the soup simmer for 15 minutes on low heat.
- To create this creamy and smooth soup usee a blender or an immersion blender to puree the soup. Be careful with using the blender and hot liquids to avoid any accidents.
- Bring the soup back into the pot and simmer on low heat for 30 more minutes. You know it’s done when it looks super creamy and thick.
- Now it’s time for the last details. Remove the pot from heat and stir in the heavy cream.
- Serve it hot, topped with roasted pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of heavy whipping cream.
Toasted Flaxseed Bread croutons pair perfectly with this warm low carb soup. Sprinkle some roasted pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of heavy whipping cream and you are ready to face the cold autumn days.
