Classic Pumpkin Soup – Fast & Easy

Especially in winter, there’s nothing better than dunking crusty bread into a big bowl of creamy pumpkin soup (but with no cream in it!). The way I make it, it’s darn tasty and just 4 steps – a bit of chopping, plop 5 ingredients into a pot, simmer until cooked, then whizz into a soup. It’s that easy.

Especially in winter, there’s nothing better than dunking crusty bread into a big bowl of creamy pumpkin soup. This recipe is ridiculously easy, and if you have a stick blender it's a one-pot-wonder.

Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 2lb/1 kg pumpkin (any), chopped into large chunks
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 cups / 750ml chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup / 250ml milk (see notes for vegan subs)
  • Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients (except salt and pepper) in a saucepan and bring to boil, then reduce heat and let simmer until pumpkin is tender.
  2. Remove from heat and use a stick blender to blend until smooth. If you don't have a stick blender, use a blender - see notes.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then serve with crusty bread.
  4. Variations: For a richer finish, substitute the milk with cream, but add after blending and do not bring to boil.
  5. Garnishes: Dollop of yoghurt, sour cream or creme fraiche goes wonderfully.
Notes
1. To make it vegan, substitute with almond or soy milk.
2. If you don't have a stick blender, you can use a blender BUT you must make sure that the soup is cooled slightly before blending it, otherwise you will find out the hard way that hot soup + blender = soup explosion (literally, the lid will blow off the blender when you start blending it).

    Pumpkin soup is probably my favourite soup – I like a little heat so I add some spices and fresh chilli – a huge bowl with some homemade bread and topped with yoghurt and seeds is my idea of a perfect lunch.

      What spices do you like to add? I’ve played around with it a lot over the years but keep falling back to the classic! I had one the other day at a bistro with orange in it……not convinced about that!
