Vegan Whole Pumpkin Soup

Vegan Whole Pumpkin Soup

Fall means SOUP and it doesn’t get any better than this Vegan Whole Pumpkin Soup. This healthy and filling veggie soup is eaten right out of the pumpkin… delicious and SO MUCH FUN to eat!

This soup is made with fresh thyme and rosemary that fill the kitchen with an amazing aroma while also giving a satisfying flavor to this creamy vegetable soup. Tomatoes, Swiss chard, and of course, whole sugar PUMPKINS create a soup that looks just as good as it tastes.

We have made several pumpkin soups in the past. Everything from canned pumpkin to spending too much time and energy cutting up fresh pumpkin for the soup. There is just something beautiful about being able to serve a whole pumpkin in front of a guest, or looking into the oven and seeing the sugar pumpkins baking with their savory soup filling. Yet, it is also shockingly easy to make. No blisters needed!

But the best part is scooping the cooked pumpkin away from the shell while devouring this savory soup. There really is nothing better to eat during fall, then a pumpkin out of a pumpkin bowl!

We cannot take all the credit for this recipe though. We first saw a version of this recipe in a magazine by chef Carla Hall. Over the years we have made it several different ways until settling on this delicious vegan version. The coconut pairs so well with the creamy sweet pumpkin even better then real cream in my opinion. ūüėČ

We hope you enjoy this Vegan Whole Pumpkin Soup as much as we do. Chances are you will want to make it annually in order to savor all of fall’s incredible bounty. Happy slurping!
