  • 1 lb Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk (or heavy cream for a richer soup)
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas), for garnish


  1. Brown the Sausage:In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, cook the Italian sausage over medium heat, breaking it apart with a spoon, until browned and cooked through. Remove the sausage from the pot and set aside.
  2. Sauté Onion and Garlic:In the same pot, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add Pumpkin and Spices:Return the cooked sausage to the pot. Add the pumpkin puree, chicken broth, coconut milk (or heavy cream), curry powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir well to combine.
  4. Simmer:Bring the soup to a simmer over medium-low heat. Let it simmer gently for 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together, stirring occasionally.
  5. Season and Serve:Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. If the soup is too thick, you can add more chicken broth or coconut milk to reach your desired consistency.
  6. Garnish and Enjoy:Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with chopped fresh parsley and toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas) for a delightful crunch. Serve hot and enjoy the cozy flavors of fall!
