Cook With Us – Pumpkin Soup


  • 1.2 kg / 2.4 lb pumpkin (any type)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves , peeled whole
  • 3 cups / 750ml vegetable broth
  • 1 cup / 250 ml water
  • Salt and pepper


  • 1/2 cup / 125 ml cream


  • Cut the pumpkin into 3cm / 2.25″ slices. Cut the skin off and scrape seeds out. Cut into chunks.
  • Place the pumpkin, onion, garlic, broth and water in a pot – liquid won’t cover all the pumpkin. Bring to a boil, uncovered, then reduce heat and let simmer rapidly until pumpkin is tender.
  • Remove from heat and use a stick blender to blend until smooth. If you don’t have a stick blender, use a blender.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir through cream (never boil soup after adding soup, cream will split). 
  • Ladle soup into bowls, drizzle over a bit of cream, sprinkle with pepper and parsley if desired. Serve with crusty bread!
