This Creamy Pumpkin Soup is packed with pumpkin flavor, a touch of sweetness, and velvety smooth. It's the perfect cozy fall soup, and it only takes 30 minutes to throw together!
Heat a large stock pot to a medium-lo heat. Add butter. Once butter melts, add onion, carrot, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sweat veggies until slightly softened and fragrant, about 4-5 minutes.
Add in pumpkin, chicken stock, remaining salt, cinnamon, black pepper, and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Transfer soup to a blender and blend until smooth. Be careful, the soup is HOT! You can also use a hand blender if you don't want to dirty up a blender.
Transfer the soup back to the pot and add half and half. Stir to combine. Simmer another minute or two. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
