What You Need
Our Thermomix Pumpkin Soup is made from just 5 ingredients (and you might already have them at home):
Scroll to the recipe card at the bottom for the full detailed recipe.
- pumpkin - you can use any type of pumpkin you like. Here in Australia, jap, butternut and kent and are great options. Butternut is my favourite as it has such a great flavour - but any variety is fine to use.
- onion - choose a brown onion. Once roasted, it will become soft and full of flavour.
- olive oil - for roasting the pumpkin and onion
- vegetable stock - use your own homemade vegetable stock or store-bought. If using store-bought, I like to use the Vegeta brand.
- cream - adding cream to your pumpkin soup will make it deliciously smooth and creamy. If you're looking for a dairy-free alternative, switch to coconut cream.
Step By Step Instructions
It couldn't be easier to make pumpkin soup using your Thermomix! Scroll to the recipe card at the bottom for the full detailed recipe.
Roast The Vegetables
Drizzle the pumpkin and onion with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and bake in the oven until soft.
Allow the pumpkin and onion to cool and then place into the Thermomix bowl. Puree the vegetables until smooth (puree for less time if you prefer a bit of chunkiness).
Note: At this stage the mixture will be very thick.
Add half of the vegetable stock liquid to the Thermomix bowl and mix through. Repeat with the remaining liquid.
Note: At no stage should you exceed the MAX line. Omit some of the vegetable stock liquid if you are at the line.
Add the cream and heat through.
Roasting the pumpkin is what makes this pumpkin soup taste a million times better than recipes that cook the soup in liquid stock. If you prefer not to roast the pumpkin, try this recipe instead (but we HIGHLY recommend that you do roast it!).
It's very important to never exceed the MAX line for safety reasons. When you are adding the stock, make sure you do not exceed the line (it's fine to omit some of the liquid stock if necessary).
There's so many great options! We recommend either a homemade sourdough loaf, white fluffy rolls, scrolls or naan bread.
Store leftover pumpkin soup in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
With the cool weather well and truly here, it's time to make soup!
