How to make Easy Pumpkin Soup
To make this soup, simply grab a large saucepan and heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft – about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and spices, and stir constantly for 1 minute.
Stir in the chicken stock, pumpkin puree, salt, and pepper.
Bring to the boil, then turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cream.
Using a handheld immersion blender, puree the soup until it reaches your desired consistency. Alternatively, use a tabletop blender and puree the soup in 2 – 3 batches. You don’t want to fill the blender more than halfway.
Ladle the soup into bowls, and top with a little extra cream, and some crispy bacon bits, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
