Over the years, I have made many blended vegetable soups. I have learned that if you pair pretty much any vegetable with an onion, and chicken broth, cook and blend together, and you will have great soup. I swear!
If you keep canned pumpkin in your pantry, you can make an ” Easy Peasy” pumpkin soup in just a few minutes with only a few ingredients from your pantry. What a great weeknight fall dinner!
I made a big batch. My husband is currently in China….But I am having a baby in December! I have decided that I need to start stocking up my freezer with meals to have on hand once the babe is born!
” Easy Peasy” Pumpkin Soup
1 large can of Pumpkin
6 cups of water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 tablespoons of maple syrup.
1) In a Soup Pan, saute onions and olive oil. until translucent
2) Add Water, chicken bouillon and pumpkin.
3) Bring mixture to a boil and let cook for 20-25 minutes
4) Blend together. You might have to get another soup pot out because it will fill up your blender 3-4 times.
After tasting this soup, I thought it needed a little sweetness to it. I added 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. There. Perfect:)
I had enough soup for me, AND enough for a big meal once babe #2 arrives!
