How do you thicken squash or pumpkin soup?

You must evaporate some liquid to thicken the squash soup. Remove the lid to accelerate the evaporation process.

Make use of a roux to thicken the soup or try adding cornstarch slurry. You can use natural thickening agents and thickeners like flour, arrowroot starch, cornstarch, potato starch, tapioca starch, guar gum, psyllium husk and gelatin.

Starches thicken soup and give it body. Whisk a few tablespoons of preferred starch into a little of the broth in a separate bowl before whisking it into the main pot. This prevents the starch from clumping and helps it dissolve into the soup evenly.

I usually use Xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is a widespread food additive that you come across in everything from sauces and dressings to ice cream and yogurt and gluten-free baked goods. It is a helpful thickening agent and stabilizer to stop ingredients from separating.

The larger the ratio of Xanthan gum added to a liquid, the thicker the liquid will become. Xanthan gum, 1%, can produce a significant increase in the viscosity of a liquid.

Increasing the quantity of gum gives a thicker, more stable emulsion up to 1% Xanthan gum. A teaspoon of Xanthan gum weighs about 2.5 grams and brings one cup (250 ml) of water to a 1% concentration.
