Right now, it’s all about the upcoming holidays and the mad rush and hubbub that surrounds them. There’s probably not any more of a chaotic time of year than there is starting now. Meal planning can be tough at this time of year which is why I like to stick to simple recipes and one-pot dishes. To me, creating one-pot meals during the holiday season feels like a true hack! I almost feel like I’m cheating because it makes clean up so easy.
One-pot means less clean up. One-pot means less hassle. One-pot means more time and sanity saved. And this One-Pot Cheesy Pumpkin & Sausage Soup really hits the spot, too. It is so good it will bring friends and family running to your house and to the table! It’s low-carb, keto-friendly, completely delicious, and as cheesy as soups come. Plus, it’s full of all those glorious fall and winter flavors that we all love and crave at this time of year.
Mushrooms, garlic, and plenty of cheese is then added to this soup, along with the sausage. Then, there is plenty of pumpkin puree added in. The pumpkin and the dash of nutmeg are what make this soup so festive; bringing in warmth and giving a nod to the season.
Being as this is a one-pot dish, it truly couldn’t be any easier to prepare. Plus, it has just a handful of ingredients.
Feeding a family between the holidays can be a challenge, but this soup proves that it can be done quickly and easily while also sparing you and your kitchen!
I served this soup with a hearty salad on the side for a complete dinner. And unlike many cheesy soups out there, I found that this one is actually pretty reheat friendly! Not that it’s very likely you will have anything leftover though.
