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 a fantastic meal! Here is an easy grilled chicken recipe you will love: Dry Rub Grilled Chicken With White Barbecue Sauce
As I mentioned below, I make the soup in advance and reheat it in a slow cooker. I would keep the soup in the slow cooker for a buffet-type party and have everyone serve themselves.
Make Ahead, Better The Next Day
This soup tastes better with time! While this soup can be served immediately and is delicious, I had found that when did the next day or later, all the flavors have blended and mellowed. So good.

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 tablespoons of butter instead of 4. 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 last 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 buffet-style (just leave it plugged in on warm)! If you are doing 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!
