This keto pumpkin soup is delicious on its own, but it can also be served with a variety of toppings, such as crumbled bacon, chopped nuts, or a dollop of sour cream. It pairs well with a crisp green salad or a slice of crusty keto bread.
This soup can easily be customized to your preferences. Add more or less of your favorite spices, or swap out the chicken broth for vegetable broth to make it vegetarian. You can also add some cooked sausage or chicken for a heartier meal.
If you don’t have pumpkin puree on hand, you can use butternut squash or sweet potato puree instead. You can also substitute coconut milk for the heavy cream if you prefer a dairy-free option.
This soup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. It can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
- Be sure to use pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling which contains added sugar.
- If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a regular blender but be sure to let the soup cool slightly before blending and work in batches.
- For a creamier soup, add an extra 1/4 cup of heavy cream or coconut milk.
This recipe makes 4 servings.
