As the autumn leaves start to fall, there's nothing like wrapping your hands around a bowl of warm, comforting pumpkin soup. Made with flavor-packed ingredients, this easy microwave pumpkin soup is seasoned with warming spices like cinnamon and ginger.

Skip the canned stuff and make your own pumpkin puree in the microwave with peak-season pumpkins—it's a game-changer. Elevate your soup even further by browning butter for that toasty richness, and if you're feeling fancy, top it off with sour cream, pumpkin seeds, and fried sage leaves.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

  • Stir in steamed rice for a heartier soup.

Recipe notes

  • This recipe works well with any fresh or canned pumpkin or winter squash puree. Make sure not to use pumpkin pie filling.
  • Transfer the soup to the Anytime Freezer Trays and save for up to 3 months.
  • If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice on hand, substitute with a blend of ground cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves and nutmeg.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
