Warm up with this Simple Spicy Pumpkin Soup No Cream
Pumpkin soup is the ultimate comfort soup for autumn and winter days. And this homemade pumpkin soup has delicious, warming, deep flavors and a hint of spice. The soup is easy to make and delicious to eat.
It has a creamy texture sweet and earthy taste. Combined with the spice, a flavor explosion in every bite.
The fibrous flesh of the pumpkin is deliciously baked, grilled, or boiled. And in this recipe, I have chosen to process it into soup. First, roast it in the oven and puree it into a smooth soup. Then, I spice it up in this recipe with a spicy salsa. It is wonderfully warming, great for the cold autumn days.
What do you need for this Roasted Pumpkin Soup No Cream?
You will need the following ingredients to make this spicy pumpkin soup yourself. You can find the correct quantities in the recipe card at the bottom of the blog:
- Butternut Pumpkin: Also known as the Butternut squash. It has a sweet, nutty taste. An ideal pumpkin for roasting.
- If you can't find butternut squash, you can also use orange pumpkin.
- Red pepper and tomatoes: The basis of the salsa.
- By making the salsa separately from the soup, you can decide how spicy you want the soup to be. It's nice if there are also children eating with you.
- Balsamic glaze: Delicious balsamic vinegar is reduced to a syrup (or glaze, as the name says), making it velvety, soft, and fuller in taste.
- Garlic and onions: The basic flavors of the soup. Roast the garlic for even more flavor.
- Broth: Use chicken stock for a mild taste.
- Thyme: Use fresh thyme to add lots of flavor to this soup.
- Oregano: It has a spicy aromatic taste and a bit of spice. Use it as a garnish. If you don't have oregano, leave it out.
