Pumm’s hot soup

Wondering what to do with all the pumpkin leftovers, why not make a delicious soup!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Servings: 4

  • 1 medium-sized pumpkin (about 2-3 pounds)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 240ml heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh parsley or chives for garnish
  1. Prepare the Pumpkin:
    • Peel, seed, and cut the pumpkin into chunks. You can use a sharp knife or a peeler to remove the skin. Set aside.
  2. Sauté the Aromatics:
    • In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, garlic, carrot, and celery. Sauté for 5-7 minutes or until the vegetables become tender and the onion turns translucent.
  3. Spice it Up:
    • Add the ground cumin, ground coriander, and ground nutmeg to the sautéed vegetables. Stir well and cook for an additional 2 minutes to toast the spices.
  4. Cook the Pumpkin:
    • Add the pumpkin chunks to the pot and pour in the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes or until the pumpkin is soft and easily pierced with a fork.
  5. Blend the Soup:
    • Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, puree the soup until smooth and creamy. Be careful when blending hot liquids. If using a regular blender, blend in batches.
  6. Finish and Season:
    • Return the pureed soup to the pot and stir in the heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes to heat the soup through.
  7. Serve:
    • Ladle the hot pumpkin soup into bowls. Garnish with cream, pumpkin seeds, fresh parsley or chives for a burst of colour and flavour.
