Creamy Paleo Pumpkin Soup – Dairy Free

 

Paleo Pumpkin Soup - Vegan-4543A lovely, creamy soup to warm you up on any cool Fall day.

It took me awhile to find the perfect pumpkin soup, I tried loads of variations.

The key to any good pumpkin soup is the pumpkin you are using.  It is the star ingredient!  Making your own puree of the right kind of squash or pumpkin in this recipe will make a world of difference.  After all, you wouldn’t use mushy, flavorless apples for your apple pie….it just wouldn’t taste the same.  Or put canned tomatoes on top of your salad?  Fresh squash and pumpkin puree is where it is at!  I go into a tutorial and how to pick the right squashes and pumpkins for baking in this post.

If you do not have a high powered blender, you might choose to peel the apples first.  I leave mine on and they pulverize in my Blend Tec  (love!)Paleo Pumpkin Soup - Vegan-4533

    I love the look of this recipe! I’ve made paleo pumpkin soup before, and it was so yum, but I’m liking the idea of including apple! I’d imagine it adds some sweetness, awesome!

    I’m looking forward to Winter next year so I can get onto this soup recipe!

    Thanks for posting :)

  10. Cstherine says:

    I made this recipe last fall and loved it!!! Do you think it would work to make it in the crock pot?

    • Hi Catherine! If I were to modify this for crockpot, i would probably used chunked butternut squash or sugar pie pumpkin. The flavors may not be as developed without the saute of ingredients (which sweetens and heightens flavors), but it would certainly still work! Go for it and let us know how it turns out!

    This looks amazing. I have some triamble squash – these crazy big green squash shaped like clover leaves – that would work with this, I think. Thanks for the recipe!
