This soup is REALLY easy to make. No blending or processing. And apart from the fresh cilantro garnish, all the ingredients are from the store cupboard – but it doesn't taste like it! This pumpkin soup has SO much flavor, and would be ideal for serving as part of your Thanksgiving celebrations! It serves about six people, so it's perfect for an appetizer or light lunch.
How to Make Low Carb Pumpkin Soup
Add a little oil to a large saucepan and place over a medium heat. Add some garam masala and fry it for five minutes to release a wonderful fragrance!
Next, add a whole can of pumpkin puree (100% pumpkin, not pie filling), a can of unsweetened coconut milk, onion powder, ground cumin, and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.
Test for seasoning, and add salt and pepper as necessary. Serve the soup into bowls, and garnish with cilantro. You could even garnish it with some roasted pumpkin seeds!
