Creamy Grilled Pumpkin Soup

Recipes for creamy pumpkin soups are commonly sought around Halloween but you can make this wonderful pumpkin soup recipe whenever you fancy. The pumpkin is grilled to make it tender and soft and to bring out its wonderful flavor and the grilled pumpkin pieces are combined with wine, cream, onion and more to make this deliciously simple creamy pumpkin soup.

Grilled fresh vegetables always come out beautifully because this cooking method draws out the delicious flavors and makes the flesh soft and tender and pumpkin does especially well on the grill. You can garnish the soup with ground nutmeg rather than the cream and parsley if you prefer it.

If you are looking for a good all-rounder of a recipe, this is a classic one. Featuring pumpkin, onion, cream white wine and chicken broth, this is a fairly standard way to make pumpkin soup. Grilling the pumpkin first however is what makes this recipe so special, because baked or boiled pumpkin does not taste as good as pumpkin which has been grilled, and of course canned pumpkin has even less flavor. So do yourself a flavor and ensure you choose a nice fresh pumpkin and then take the time to grill it before making the soup. Your efforts will be more than rewarded when you discover how tasty this soup is.
