Gluten Free Easy Pumpkin Soup Recipe

by Carol Kicinski on October 16, 2012

Post image for Gluten Free Easy Pumpkin Soup Recipe There is nothing like a steamy bowl of soup to warm up a crisp fall evening.

This pumpkin soup has three ingredients and is ready in five minutes but no one needs to know this! It is rich, creamy (despite the lack of dairy) and hearty, and I have no shame in taking a little help from organic canned pumpkin puree and gluten free chicken stock. To make this recipe vegan, use vegetable stock instead.

I couldn’t resist giving this soup some Halloween flair with spider webs. I just put some sour cream (dairy free is fine) in a small plastic squeeze bottle, gave it a shake to loosen it up a bit and then drew concentric circles on top of the soup. I then took a toothpick and drew lines through the circles; alternate the lines from the center out and then from the outside in. If you prefer a less Halloween-specific garnish, a dollop of sour cream and maybe a sprinkling of chives is quite lovely.

What really gives this soup its depth of flavor is the addition of Sunbutter. I love the way it makes this quick soup taste like it took a lot longer to make. And of course, it is completely nut free. Use creamy for a smooth soup and Natural Crunch if you like a bit of texture to your soups.

I can almost guarantee you that the kiddos will gobble this up before heading out for some serious trick or treating.

Thanks Dana!

Wow, what an easy recipe. I am very anxious to try it since I love pumpkin anything, and due to allergies and intolerances to not only dairy, eggs, gluten and oats, this sounds wonderful.
