This easy creamy pumpkin soup is ready in under 30 minutes.

The weather is cooling off in the Bay Area now and it is getting cold. Time for fuzzy slippers, sweaters, and warm jackets.

Cold weather = soup in our house.

And even better? You can just toss the ingredients into the pot and let it cook. No roasting and peeling pumpkin, I used a can of organic pumpkin puree as a time saver.

Pumpkin soup is nutritious and so quick and easy to make.


To save time, I used canned organic pureed pumpkin. Canned organic pumpkin is just as nutritious. Pumpkin is filled with vitamin A and beta-carotene. You are welcome to roast your pumpkin, puree it, and use that for your soup. My main goal for this soup was to create an easy pumpkin soup that could be ready quickly on a busy school night.

I try to keep a big pot of soup in the refrigerator most of the time. Something that can be quickly reheated for a meal, or even a snack.

Our family has several soups that we seem to make a lot. Sometimes the soup is full of vegetables, like this Country Hamburger Vegetable Soup.

And sometimes it is spicy and oh so filling like this Shredded Chicken Taco Soup.
