I received the most amazing pumpkin kit from Sprouts Farmer’s Market. To see what all was in it, check out my Instagram (whatkatiesbaking).
One of the the items included was canned Organic Pumpkin.
The options for pumpkin puree are pretty limitless. When I grabbed this can of pumpkin to make something with, it was a crisp, chilly evening and I was craving something warm, salty, spicy and comforting. I think the most comforting food on a fall-like evening is soup. Not thin, watery soup, but thick, hearty soup. So, I found a recipe for spicy pumpkin soup.
Oh. My. Gosh. This soup is amazing and incredibly easy to make. It’s perfect for cozy fall nights or Sunday football parties. I highly recommend it!
2 ½ cups vegetable or chicken broth 1 can (15 oz) Sprouts Organic Pumpkin (canned) ½ an onion, cut into small pieces 1 clove garlic, minced or 1 tsp garlic salt 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning ½ cup heavy cream (or whole milk)
1. Heat chicken broth, pumpkin puree, onion, garlic, and Cajun seasoning to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. 2. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 to 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. 3. Stir in heavy cream before serving.
Happy September! It’s still so hot out, but I can’t hold off any longer on the pumpkin recipes.
I love the fall season. Pretty sure there’s nothing better than fall colors and decorations, the smell of crisp air, comfy sweaters/scarves/socks, changing leaves, autumn scented candles, and pumpkin everything.
I’m very excited because I’ve got a pumpkin basket coming in the mail! I’ll be recipe testing soon. 🙂
