| Perfect Starter For Your Holiday Dinner or Fall Gathering
Pumpkin soup is a quintessential fall recipe for sure! Many people serve pumpkin soup as a starter for their Thanksgiving dinner which would be so tasty. I am planning an evening outdoor fall gathering, and thought that serving this soup alongside a grilled chicken and a make-ahead layered salad, would make an amazing meal! Here is an easy grilled chicken recipe you will love: Best Grilled Chicken Recipe (Dry Rub Grilled Chicken With White Barbecue Sauce)
As I mention below, I make the soup in advance and reheat in a slow cooker. For a buffet type party, I would keep the soup in the slow cooker and have everyone serve themselves.

| Can I substitute fresh pumpkin puree with canned puree?
Yes, absolutely. You can easily substitute fresh pumpkin puree for the canned.
| Is pumpkin soup healthy?
Yes. Pumpkin soup is healthy. Not only is it low in carbs, but it also has approximately 44% of your day’s Vitamin A, 17 % of Vitamin K, and 11% of Potassium and Iron.
| How can I reduce the fat in this recipe
You can reduce fat in the recipe by only using 2 tbsp. butter instead of 4 tbsp. You can also substitute low-fat coconut milk. Keep in mind however, it will not be as creamy as keeping the butter and coconut milk, but it will still be good!
| How long can I keep pumpkin soup in the refrigerator?
Pumpkin soup will keep 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
| How do I reheat pumpkin soup?
The best way I found to reheat soup is in a slow cooker! This is the perfect solution if you are serving it for a holiday meal – also great if you are serving buffet-style (just leave it plugged in on warm)! If you are serving individual portions you can reheat each bowl in the microwave. You can also slowly reheat the soup on your stovetop. Just cover, heat on medium-low and stir periodically.
| How do you thicken pumpkin soup?
To thicken pumpkin soup you can remove the lid and simmer a little longer until some of the liquid has evaporated. If you have made the soup to keep in the fridge for a few days, it will thicken on its own.
Another low carb way to thicken soup is to mix 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum with 1 tbsp olive oil. Add to soup and stir. It will thicken. A little bit goes a long way so be careful.
| What if my pumpkin soup is too thick?
If your pumpkin soup is too thick, you can add more vegetable broth. If you have stored your pumpkin soup in the refrigerator you may find it has thickened. Just add the broth and you should be good to go!
