Thick & Creamy Pumpkin Soup is our family recipe, and a favourite weekly soup! Served with crispy bacon, this soup will become YOUR new favourite soup!
The first time I shared a pumpkin soup with ya’ll, it was in the form of this Spinach Pumpkin Soup, also known as Shrek soup for little ones who don’t like vegetables. This soup, however, makes the weekly rounds at my mother’s house, and is always served with bacon AND sometimes even buttery and cheesy garlic bread. Yes, we totally go there. Yes, I’m totally sharing that recipe with you next week!
Our pumpkin soup is quite possibly the easiest soup recipe on the planet, because everything is thrown into a pot; boiled; blended and served.
Then, cream is added right at the end and swirled through the soup……
……and bacon makes its entrance.
So thick and creamy. The PERFECT comfort soup in a bowl!
