Seven soups every Saturday: pumpkin soup recipes

7 soup bowls from A Bloggable Life

Now that the candles inside Jack O'Lanterns everywhere have been extinguished for another year, it's time to give pumpkins their due as one of the great foods of the autumn season. For soup, sugar pumpkins (also called pie pumpkins) taste best, but canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling, which contains added sugar and other ingredients) makes a good substitute.

Seven pumpkin soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Apple pumpkin soup, from Eclectic Recipes

Thai-spiced roast pumpkin soup, from Cook Sister!

Pumpkin soup with smoked paprika, from Simply Recipes

Mexican pumpkin soup, from FatFree Vegan Kitchen

Black bean pumpkin soup, from One Hot Stove

Jamaican pumpkin soup crockpot recipe, from A Year of Slow Cooking

Carrot pumpkin soup with ginger and cilantro, from Cafe Liz

Find more delicious pumpkin soup recipes with Food Blog Search. Come back every Saturday for seven soup recipes to enjoy any day of the week.


Sandie, who writes the lovely A Bloggable Life, also loves these exuberant bowls: "As a food blogger, I'm always on the lookout for interesting dishes and accessories to use in my photographs. Aside from searching estate sales, thrift stores, auctions and antique shops, two of my favorite haunts are Marshalls and T.J. Maxx---they have some great bargains if you're willing to dig. I found these bowls on a recent excursion to T.J. Maxx."

If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents' attic, or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.

It's easy: send one photo, of seven soup bowls or soup mugs. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup, and they absolutely do not have to match. Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.

That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.

I love for the Jamaican soup - hubby and I went to Jamaica and I was four months pregnant at the time. The pumpkin soup was what I remember most - that and the fact that Jamaican men love pregnant women! That's a different story altogether, but the soup was wonderful and was a blessing to my sometimes very squeamish stomach!

Lydia, thanks for the mention! I like that ginger/cilantro recipe a lot, and coincidentally made it last night.

Pumpkin is growing on me as a soup ingredient, so I'll have to try some of these.

Love baking with pumpkin (it makes muffins, cookies & bread so moist!), but I've never made or eaten soup with pumpkin in it---looks like I may have to rectify that with any of these great recipes. Thanks for using my bowl photo. I thought these were particularly colorful & fun!
P.S. Have you ever cooked or made soup with Carnival Squash? I roasted & filled some recently and the recipe I used was horrible. Any suggestions off the top of your head?

Colleen, there must have been some magic in that Jamaican soup!

Liz, I confess that I'm not a cilantro lover, but so many Soup Chick readers are, and I'm sure they will love your soup.

Kalyn, same here. I'm slowly coming around to what everyone else seems to know already, that pumpkin makes wonderful soup.

Sandie, I've never made anything with carnival squash. Readers, do you have any suggestions?
