With Halloween just around the corner, I have really been feeling pumpkin-themed foods lately. Pumpkin cake, pumpkin lattes, mashed pumpkins – you had me at pumpkin! Additionally, with October 26 being National Pumpkin Day, what better way to commemorate our favourite harvest squash than with a recipe (and giveaway) in celebration of all things pumpkin?
When I was growing up in Alberta, it was always snowing by this time of the year. Perhaps my memory of this is why I find a hot bowl of spiced soup so especially comforting. With pumpkins in season, Elin and I (but mostly Elin) are going to show you how to combine our two favorite Fall staples, pumpkin and soup, to create the perfect Fall comfort food: Spiced Pumpkin Soup. Serve it in these adorable Staub pumpkin bowls from our friends at Zwilling Canada and you’d be hard-pressed to find anything more festive!

Spiced Pumpkin Soup
1 can pumpkin puree (796ml)
5 cups stock (chicken or vegetable)
1 cup 35% whipping cream
1 tsp pumpkin spice mix* (see the Notes below on how to make your own!)
1 tsp red pepper flakes (if you like spice, I would go up to 2 tsp)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
maple syrup (optional)
1. Over medium-high heat, add the pumpkin puree, stock, cream, pumpkin spice mix, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes into your Staub Pumpkin Cocotte 😉
3. Bring to a boil, whisking
4. Reduce heat to medium-low
5. Simmer about 5 minutes, whisking
6. Taste, adjust salt & pepper
7. Serve in adorable Staub mini Pumpkin bowls
Optional: Drizzle with maple syrup (I liked the maple syrup with it, one of our tasters preferred it without)
* Notes: To make the Pumpkin Spice Mix – mix together
1. 3 tbsp cinnamon
2. 1 tbsp ginger
3. 2 tsp nutmeg
4. 1 tsp ground cloves
5. 1 tsp ground allspice
Store in an airtight jar.
