Creamy Slow Cooker Pumpkin Soup
A slow cooker pumpkin soup is perfect for a healthier dinner that you can prepare and cook ahead of time.
creamy soup is loaded with all the flavors you’d expect in a good pumpkin soup. It has a mixture of onion, garlic, carrots, pumpkin, cream and some spices. I love it and recommend it.
You should be able to feed about eight people from a single batch of this soup. You may need to double the recipe if you need to feed more. Just make sure you’ll be able to fit it all into your slow cooker.
Soups are one of my favorite types of meals, as you’ll usually have leftovers. Leftovers are great for an easy lunch the next day.
Be sure to store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. This soup will last about three or four days stored in the fridge, and if you want it to last longer, I recommend freezing it.
recommend using a stick blender to make your life much easier when it comes to making soups in a slow cooker or slow cooker. Using a stick blender means you can bombard the soup without removing it from the device. It’s less cleanliness, which is always good.
The type of pumpkin you use for this soup is not very important. Still, for the best flavors, I highly recommend butternut squash. Depending on where you live, butternut pumpkins may not be cheap or even available, so alternatives may be the only option.
If you don’t have chicken broth or fresh vegetables, then the powders or cartons you can buy at the supermarket are just as good. I would avoid using water instead of broth, as you’ll miss out on a bit of flavor.
You can use potato instead of carrot if you don’t like carrot flavors. Potato is also a great way to bulk up a soup without overpowering it with additional flavors.
What to serve
with pumpkin soup
There are plenty of side dishes that go well with pumpkin soup, but for me, nothing beats a good loaf of fresh bread. Sliced, buttered and dipped in the soup is the best way to take it.
I love making homemade croutons and sprinkling them over the top of the soup. They are perfect for absorbing all those delicious flavors and adding a little crunch to the soup.
If you like bacon, I recommend adding some crispy sliced bacon after bombarding the soup. Not only will it add some flavor, but it will also add some crunchy chunks to the soup.
