  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 1 small clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh-grated ginger
  • 3/4 cup chicken bone broth or vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree canned or homemade; not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 1 pinch fenugreek optional; see Note
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon roasted salted pumpkin seeds for garnish (optional)


  • Add the butter to a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until starting to soften, but not brown, about 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and ginger and cook 1 minute more, stirring constantly.
  • Add the broth, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice mix, fenugreek, and a pinch of salt and black pepper. Bring to a boil, and then turn the heat down and simmer 5 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  • Carefully puree the soup in a blender or using an immersion blender. Add the cream.
  • Taste and add additional salt and black pepper as desired. Serve with the pumpkin seeds on top.


Fenugreek: This spice adds subtle caramel and maple flavor notes without adding sugar. You can omit it if you like, and instead use 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup.
