October has me feeling all Fall! It makes me realize how much I truly love this season. The weather has been just right, and I am loving all of the Fall flavors popping up in my CSA! I purchased some amazing blanket scarfs, my boots are out and in use, and this past weekend we went apple picking! The foliage in New England is really starting to shine in only the way it can in New England! So beautiful.


Can you taste that creamy goodness? OH. YEAH. 

This is the perfect Fall soup for all of you pumpkin lovers! Delicious, flavorful, and packed with nutrients. Creamy pumpkin topped with a drizzle of chili garlic oil and roasted pumpkin seeds. You’ll enjoy this soup all season long!

    1. I haven’t tried that so can’t guarantee, but I think since the pumpkin picks up a ton of flavor when it’s roasted it might change it a bit.

  1. Hi! I’m planning on making this tomorrow.

    I’m trying to figure out what to do with the cubed pumpkins- should I peel the outside skin before putting it in the pot or it will blend as it goes? Let me know! Thanks!

  2. I love pumpkin soup and this recipe sounds delicious. I’m too lazy to go to the trouble of preparing this recipe from raw pumpkin. I’ve made pumpkin soup many times using 100% pumpkin, canned pumpkin and it always turns out perfect. I have a Nutra Bullet RX that you just throw all of the ingredients into and it cooks it to boiling hot and purees it as well. And clean up is quite easy.
    I’m going to try your recipe with the exception of canned rather than fresh pumpkin. I’m sure it’s going to hit the spot.
    My son and daughter-in-law are hosting a Thanksgiving brunch, I’m going to bring this soup as one of my dishes along with a loaf of crusty artisan bread.
    Just don’t make the mistake of using pumpkin pie filling, it doesn’t work. Only 100% canned pumpkin.
