Recipe: Spiced Pumpkin Soup

One thing I love about being on Weight Watchers -- the recipes!!! This one my meeting leader shared on her Facebook, and I'm sharing it with all of you!

Fall is pumpkin season, but before you reach for a pumpkin spiced latte (5 WW Points for a tall!) -- try this soup to warm you up.

Spiced Pumpkin Soup


  • 1 TBS canola oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp salt [or salt substitute]
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups reduced sodium, fat free broth (chicken or vegetable)
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
  • 1 (12 oz) can evaporated fat free milk
  • 6 TBS plain fat free Greek yogurt
To Make:
  1. In a large pot, heat oil. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes, or until soft. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the rest of the spices, salt and pepper.
  2. Whisk in broth and pumpkin. Bring to just a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add milk and simmer for 2 minutes.
  3. Using an immersion blender, puree soup until smooth. For thinner texture, add more broth. 
  4. Ladle into bowls and garnish with yogurt.
