Pumpkin-Bean Soup

I found this quick and easy soup recipe on the Better Homes and Gardens web site
The color is perfect for fall.

Pumpkin and White Bean Soup

Now that I'm just cooking for one, I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy meals.
I just happened to have all the ingredients at home with a few minor modifications.

Pumpkin-Bean Soup


1     15 oz can pumpkin
1     14 oz can unsweetened coconut milk (I used *lite*)
1     15 oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (I used Navy beans.)
1     14 oz can vegetable broth (I used chicken.)
1     tsp. dried leaf sage, crushed
Salt and ground black pepper (I didn't salt. Figured with all the canned products, I didn't need anymore salt!)
Cracked black peppercorns, optional (I didn't use)
Fresh lime slices, optional (I didn't use)    


1. In medium saucepan combine pumpkin, unsweetened coconut milk, beans, broth and sage. Heat through.

2. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with black peppercorns. Drizzle with lime.
Makes 4 servings. 

I thought the soup was very good. Certainly fast and easy. I love bean soups and would add a second can of beans. I'm going to make it again ... for our next cool spell ... (November???!!!).

Wishing YOU well and a tasty bowl of soup!

Looks yummy! I might give it a try, I like beans :)

Sounds good to me - did you taste the coconut in the soup? I usually use almond milk - wonder if that would do or if the coconut taste was important in the flavoring.

I've been craving soup for days and this looks like it might just fit the bill. I can't wait to try it.

The soup sounds yummy. I make chili with pumpkin added and I love it so this will probably be one I'll try.

We had cooler weather yesterday and I made soup, too.
