Pumpkin & Sausage Soup October 31, 2008

I’m on a pumpkin kick!  (But hey, it’s only fall once a year, right?)  We tried this soup last week (per Matt’s encouraging and my skepticism) and REALLY enjoyed it!  I got past the fact that it wasn’t a sweet pumpkin flavor, like all the other pumpkin things I’m used to, but it was a deliciously light savory pumpkin.  It was wonderful with some biscuits … although THEY weren’t low-carb! :)  Give it a try and enjoy!  (I didn’t serve it in a pumpkin, but isn’t that a great idea!?)

Low-Carb Pumpkin & Sausage Soup


  • 16 ounces country style sausage (the kind in a tube)
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1-2 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. In a large pot, brown sausage, drain, then add the onion, garlic, Italian seasoning and mushrooms and sauté until onions are translucent.
  2. Add the pumpkin and broth and mix well.
  3. Simmer 20-30 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the milk, sour cream and water.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
