Pumpkin Soup

Introducing: Don't Waste your Homecookin' a new series where recipes will be shared! Today, Chrissy from Real Grace Filled Life is sharing Spicy Pumpkin Soup.

Today I’m sharing a little Fall inspiration! This is an EASY and quick meal that can be made for lunch or dinner. The sandwiches are great for kids too. Pick and choose your ingredients according to your preferences (i.e. no avocado, different cheese or meat).

Spicy Pumpkin Soup

8 servings


2 tablespoons vegetable oil1 large onion, chopped2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger1 small jalapeno chili, seeded and finely chopped3 garlic cloves, minced1 teaspoon lime zest1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree1 13.5-ounce can light coconut milk, shaken4 cups canned low-sodium chicken brothSalt

Directions:In a pan, warm oil over medium-low heat.

Saute onion and ginger until soft, 8 minutes. Do not let brown.

Add jalapeno and garlic; cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. (For less spicy soup, add less jalapeno.)

Stir in lime zest, pumpkin, coconut milk and broth. Being to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt. Remove from heat, let cool slightly, then puree in a blender. Serve hot.

  1. Hey, yesterday and today's posts have come out all in symbols.....I wondered whether it was a code but today it's the same. I'm on Ubuntu using Firefox to view, is anyone else having the same issue?

  2. You seem to be stuck with wing-dings as a font. Weird. I noticed this yesterday, too and thought I would let you know.

    I am using google chrome and see it in symbols, too.

  3. Hi, I'm having the same problem - and I'm using Internet Explorer 8 on Google. Yesterday's post came through OK, but todays is all in WingDings. What a shame - as I love Pumpkin Soup and would like to see your recipe! I'll keep checking back - hopefully they can get this fixed for you soon!

  4. It's also in wing-dings for me as well. If anyone wants to read it though you can just copy and paste it into word. It will automatically correct itself to regular words. Very interesting issue though! Hopefully it gets fixed soon!
