Easy Sweet Crockpot Pumpkin Soup

Serve this delicious pumpkin soup with crusty bread and top it with grated cheese and a generous dollop of sour cream. This wonderful soup freezes well, but it is also fine for several days in the refrigerator. You might need to add a little extra water when you warm it back up. If you want this to be vegetarian, use vegetable bouillon instead of the chicken bouillon. Beef bouillon also works. You can use sweet potatoes instead of regular ones for a sweeter flavor.

Pumpkin soup is a classic fall favorite but there is no reason you cannot make it at other times of the year, whenever you can get hold of a fresh pumpkin. Although canned pumpkin can be used, you will get a far superior flavor if you use fresh pumpkin, so make an effort to get some. It is up to you what type of potatoes you use in this pumpkin soup recipe. You can combine regular potatoes with sweet potatoes, or stick to one kind.

This is a soup which kids and grownups will love. There are of course some soups which kids turn their noses up at, and some which adults are not crazy about, but this pumpkin soup recipe ticks all the boxes. It is sweet enough for kids, rich and creamy to please adult palates too, and easy enough to make at home, even if you are a rookie in the kitchen. Although this soup does not actually contain milk, cream, or cheese, it does have a luxurious texture.
