Pumpkin Soup for Two – Asiago Cheese Adds a Special Touch to the Finish – How Did I Make this Soup Simple – I Reached for a Can of Pumpkin –

Pumpkin Soup

Holidays are fun and fun is exhausting. As much as I like to cook, these are days that require rest, even in the kitchen. Shortcuts are welcome. Here is my simple version of Pumpkin Soup for Two:


1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1 Tablespoon grated ginger (or pinch of ginger powder)
1-1/2  or 2 cups chicken broth or chicken stock – as needed –
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 can of pumpkin – more if needed –
1/4 cup of cream-  more or less – make it as creamy as you like
1/3 cup of grated Asiago cheese
salt to taste

Cook onions, celery, and carrot in butter for 5 to 8 minutes until onions are translucent. Add grated ginger and simmer for another minute. Add chicken broth and bring to boil. Simmer about 8 minutes or until onions and celery are tender and carrots are almost cooked. (If carrots are not mushy, they add a little crunch to the soup.) Add cinnamon and nutmeg.

Add as much pumpkin as it takes to make the soup the texture you desire. Stir and heat. Add as much cream as you like. Stir and heat. Add grated asiago cheese. Stir until melted.

Salt and/or pepper to taste. Serve warm.

    This looks delicious, Carol Ann. This, I will try. …and it doesn’t look too difficult. I’m not much of a cook but can follow a recipe. 🙂


    • Thank you for stopping by, Leslie. This soup was very easy to make using canned pumpkin. I like simple recipes. I’m a learning cook. I have more time to devote to cooking now than I did when I had a full-time job. Blessings to you in the coming year and always…


  2. May New Year have bright new beginnings for you and safety. Blessings.


  3. Thank you for your like of my post, “The Sabbath – Enjoy The Lord, Appreciate His Creation.” You are a blessing. Your blog shows that “it’s okay to enjoy the Lord.” Consider the passover meal; it was a meal. Consider the “breaking of bread” that we find in the New Testament, and in Luke 24:30.Such gatherings were also for the purpose of sharing a meal and fellowship. May our Lord Jesus richly bless you.


  4. Thank you for your like of my post, ABORTION. “HE SAID WHAT???” Give Me A Break! The baby is innocent!


    • May babies one day be safe from our selfish and thoughtless ways. Heaven’s nurseries are full of babies that never met their mothers. I can’t look at the videos. It would break my heart and make me furious. Blessings to you…
