Fresh Roasted Pumpkin soup with Paleo Option by Angela Roberts

This Fresh Roasted Pumpkin Soup was Inspired by a Local Mexican Restaurant

Sometimes the bite of one dish awakens my spirit and challenges me. When a chef makes such a dish, I know I’m going to make it in my own kitchen.

This is more of an orchestra rather than a solo. In one bite you get creamy, spicy in heat and spicy in pumpkin flavor, crunchy, warm, cool, savory and sweet. All in one bite! The garnish made the soup complete, and is a big part of what makes this soup so balanced.

I was once invited to a press dinner at a local restaurant. The four course dinner was good, but the pumpkin soup was great, probably the best pumpkin soup I’ve ever eaten. I asked for the ingredients and the Chef graciously obliged. Did you know that if you ask for recipes, many times the chef will be generous and share?

Fresh Roasted Pumpkin Soup, Creamy and Spicy by angela roberts

I played around making this my very own and I decided to make two versions, one with heavy cream and one with light unsweetened coconut milk.

The coconut flavor was a little more forward than I wanted, but it was still good enough that there’s not a drop left. I preferred the version with the cream, but if you’re looking to lighten up some of your Autumn inspired food, the coconut milk works.

Fresh Roasted Pumpkin Soup, Paleo Friendly

In place of the cream, you can substitute the coconut milk, or you might be a purist and just use a vegetable or chicken broth. I made my own pumpkin puree from a sugar pumpkin, but you could use the canned pumpkin.

Either way you make pumpkin soup enjoy it. Soon pumpkin season will be over, but for now I can’t seem to get enough.

How about you? Are you pumpkin obsessing and do you like fresh roasted pumpkin soup?
