Suggested Recipe: Ginger-Pumpkin Bisque

Hi everyone,

Today on #FoodFriday, I would like to share with you a recipe from the American Heart Association. I came across this recipe into a monthly email that I receive from my gym.

If you are looking for a simple, light lunch idea, this is a good recipe. It’s healthy and low calories. You can always eat it with a slice of toast with avocado or just a nice piece of bread or by itself if you’re not so hungry.

Ginger-Pumpkin Bisque


  • 1/2 Tbsp canola oil
  • onion (finely chopped)
  • 3/4 Tbsp minced, fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or jarred minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 can low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 can pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream, to serve (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped chives (optional)

For tips and directions for this recipe, visit the American Heart Association Recipe Page.

My own advice, make sure to get the 100% pumpkin puree. This was my second attempt to make as my husband bought the pie filling instead of the regular puree the first time I tried it. What a waste! I didn’t realize until I tasted it. OMG, it was so sweet! Made me laugh though. Quite a funny story. 🙂

*** If you try the recipe, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
