Soups are one of our family’s favorite meals.  There is nothing more satisfying and comforting on a cold day than a great soup.  When Williams-Sonoma sent me this darling Staub Cast-Iron Pumpkin Cocotte, it was the perfect excuse to try a Creamy Pumpkin Soup.

The cinnamon and nutmeg are reminiscent of a pumpkin pie.  Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of the pie but this soup is a different story!  I would also love my Honey Ginger Butternut Squash Soup in this darling cast iron pumpkin.  Actually, there’s probably not much that I wouldn’t like cooking in here and serving in the matching ceramic pumpkin cocottes.  I chose the white but they each also come in orange and black.  They would be cute mixed together.

I’ve long admired this Staub Pumpkin Cocotte collection.  (A cocotte is large pot that you can both cook and serve in, by the way!) The large cast-iron cocotte is currently more than 60% off making it a great time to add this to your holiday collection.  I love the lid on the individual serving size pumpkins to keep things warm because if your family is anything like mine, calling them to dinner is not a one and done!

This soup would be a great night before Thanksgiving dish because it is perfectly on point flavor-wise and not too heavy for the meal ahead.  It can also be made ahead and refrigerated and just reheated.  That is a huge win in my book.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, you can find my Thanksgiving Prep tips hereTablescape inspiration here and My Menu and Tips here.  I made the Ginger Spiced Orange Cranberry Sauce for a Friendsgiving party one of my girls went to this weekend.  I’m craving this dish now!  I’ve used in as a topping a baked brie, too.  AMAZING and EASY!
