DIY Pumpkin Soup

This is an unusual use for pumpkin, but we all (except for Aaron) love it. Like most soup, you can customize the taste quite a bit by varying the meat and vegetables to your liking.

Homemade Pumpkin Soup Recipe

  • 4 cups chicken broth or water
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin
  • 2 cups whole milk or half-and-half
  • 1 pound of sausage, chicken, or ground beef (cut and cooked)
  • 4-6 potatoes
  • 3-4 cups carrots, corn, celery, peas, beans or a combination (cut)
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tsp salt (unless using salty sausage)
  • 2 tsp oregano or cinnamon (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a large pot, and simmer for 30-60 minutes. Or combine all ingredients in a crock pot, and cook for 4-8 hours.  These are great served with pumpkin or cheesy biscuits.
