Cream of Pumpkin Soup

Cream of Pumpkin Soup is a creamy, savory pumpkin soup. This tastes exactly how you’d imagine fall would. πŸ˜› Substitute the chicken broth with vegetable broth to make it vegetarian. 

One of Zach’s favorite dishes from last year was pumpkin soup with bacon and applewood smoked cheddar. I thought it was pretty good, but it still wasn’t quite what I was looking for in a pumpkin soup. It was a little too sweet for my taste. The bacon and the cheddar were what saved that dish for me. (As I said, Zach loved it. So I suppose it’s perfect for some people! Or maybe Zach just loves food in general.)

My perfect pumpkin soup is something that gives a hint of Thanksgiving, while also being its own savory soup. I’d call it a “savory pumpkin pie” but that might give you the wrong impression. πŸ˜›

It’s difficult to describe, you know? When you think of pumpkin, you probably automatically think of a dessert. And eating that dessert makes you feel like, “This is what fall tastes like, right here.” That’s essentially what I’m going for.

Does that even make sense?

Whatever. I found it. And that’s all that matters.

Bonus? It’s so much easier to make than last year’s soup.

This soup is incredibly savory, but it still gives you that, “It’s time for fall” feeling. It’s creamy, but not thick. I’m 100% positive this is going to make a regular appearance once cold weather gets here.

Have you ever had pumpkin soup? Last year was actually a first for me. Do you like yours to be sweet, savory, or somewhere in between?
