Fall Pistachio Pumpkin Soup is the perfect soup to cozy up with not only this Fall but all winter long too!

Pumpkins are more than just Halloween decor. Pumpkins are loaded with nutrition such as potassium, beta-carotene and antioxidants.

If you like this pumpkin recipe you’ll be sure to love my pumpkin overnight oats recipe too!

This soup also contains pistachios which offer another nutritional boost. Not only are pistachios a good source of fiber, 90% of the fat found in pistachios is unsaturated!

You’ll love my pistachio pesto too if you are a pistachio fanatic like me! I love that pesto on pasta and even on my eggs in the morning!

How to make blender soup:

This recipe is easily made using a powerful blender. Once you boil off your potatoes and they are tender – you will essentially transfer all ingredients into the blender and blend well! I use a Vitamix for my blender soups.

Can you put hot soup in a blender?

Yes! Depending on the size of your blender, you may want to work in batches. The cool thing about the Vitamix is the friction of the blades can make steaming-hot soup in under 10 minutes, right in the container; chilled soups take even less time!

Which blender should you buy?

I am very partial to the Vitamix since it is the brand I own and I just ALWAYS hear foodies using the Vitamix. I however have heard great things about the Blendtec. With 1 Google search you can find many reviews on these items

I hope you fall in love with this pistachio pumpkin soup as much as I did. What are some of your favorite Fall inspired soup recipes? I’d love to hear!

Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 2 Russet potatoes, washed and peeled
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup unsalted shelled pistachios
  • 6 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth), divided
  • 1, 15 oz. can 100% pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • pinch of paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (optional)
  • parsley for garnish or green onions
  • additional pistachios for garnish

Instructions

Directions

  • Wash and peel the potatoes and cut into about 2-inch cubes. In a large stockpot, place the potatoes and 4 cups broth in and bring it to a boil. Boil potato until you can stick a fork thru them. This takes about 10-15 minutes. Be sure to reserve broth to add it back into the soup later on – it will reduce down to about 1-2 cups!
  • While potatoes cook, sauté butter, onions, and garlic in a medium sized frying pan on medium heat, until onions become translucent; about 5-8 minutes.
  • Blend the pistachios first using a powerful blender. Then, using a slotted spoon, place cooked potatoes in the blender, then pour in the onion mixture and reserved broth. Add in all additional ingredients (except the sour cream) and blend until smooth. Soup will be thick. Caution: when mixing, your blender will get hot, since the contents are hot!
  • Transfer this back into the pot you boiled off the potatoes in on the stove and let it come to a simmer. Stir in the additional broth 1/2 cup at a time until the soup reaches a desired consistency. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Lastly, add in the sour cream and stir.
  • Enjoy warm and top with parsley and crushed pistachios!

Notes

Boil off your potatoes in advance to make this process seamless when you’re ready to blend up your soup!
Can sub sour cream for Greek yogurt or omit completely. 
If you don’t have a blender, you can pulse pistachios in a food processor and then use an immersion blender to smooth out the soup.
