Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Canned Pumpkin

This Creamy Pumpkin Soup is so simple to make with canned pumpkin. This homemade savory dish is healthy and served best when you load it up with toppings like croutons, bacon, and pumpkin seeds.

What Type of Pumpkin to Use

I like to used canned pumpkin in this recipe because it’s so easy to grab and use. You can use fresh if you wish. Be sure to puree it. When purchasing canned pumpkin, be sure the label says 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling. You can grab it here from Amazon. Pumpkin pie filling is sweetened and loaded with sugar.

How Does the Soup Taste?

This is more of a vegetable soup since it’s also loaded with onions, carrots, and celery. It definitely has a savory taste even with the addition of pumpkin pie spice. Sometimes I do like to add a hint of sweetness, so I will start with 1 teaspoon of brown sweetener or brown sugar and add more to taste as needed. If you’re looking for something a little sweet, definitely plan to add brown sugar or sweetener to the recipe.

Additional Spices for Bland or Bitter Soup

If the soup is bland, definitely add more salt to taste. You can also switch up the flavors. Try adding a teaspoon (or more, adjust to taste) of any of the following.

  • You can use fresh pumpkin if you wish. Be sure to puree it.
  • When purchasing canned pumpkin, be sure the label says 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.
  • You can make your own pumpkin pie spice using 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger.
  • For a sweet soup, add sugar or sweetener. This is more of a vegetable soup since it’s also loaded with onions, carrots, and celery. It definitely has a savory taste even with the addition of pumpkin pie spice. Sometimes I like to add a hint of sweetness, so I will start with 1 teaspoon of brown sweetener or brown sugar and add more to taste as needed. If you’re looking for something a little sweet, definitely plan to add brown sugar or sweetener to the recipe. 
  • If the soup is too thin, double check the pumpkin used. Ensure it isn’t expired. You can also add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to a small bowl along with 2 tablespoons of the cooked soup. Stir until it thickens and add it back to the pot of soup. Stir.
