This easy and tasty pumpkin soup recipe is what you need on a cold dark evening: it’s rich, packed with nutrients and extremely easy to make. Such a tasty pumpkin soup, it’s hard not to fall in love with.
In fact, this recipe doesn’t include any strange ingredient: just carrots, pumpkin and some broth. We don’t use any cream to make it creamy, and that’s what makes it healthy and delicious (just like our potato soup!)
This recipe calls for a bit of work to be done in the oven: in fact, we roast the pumpkin in the oven because it is so easy and everything tastes better when it’s homemade! Using store-bought puree for this soup is absolutely unnecessary, even not recommended to be honest.
Roasting the pumpkin is the only boring part of this recipe and it takes a few time. Once you’re done with the roasting, the soup is almost done!

Tips to Perfect Pumpkin Soup
- We love to add some ginger directly into the soup, because it gives it an extra kick. To do so, just mix some ginger powder with water and add it to the soup. If you wanna use fresh ginger, grate it and add it to the soup while cooking;
- Top each serving with cheddar cheese, if you like;
- Make sure you’ve the right amount of vegetables: if you have too many or too little pumpkin, and too many/too little carrots your soup will change in the consistency and in the taste;
- You can store your soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Just reheat it and serve;
- To add more creaminess to your soup, add some coconut milk: it will give the soup a nice flavor and smell, and it will still be vegetarian if this is what you’re up to;
- Add sliced chorizo or Italian sausage for a real kick!
- This soup freezes well; let it cool, put it in an airtight container and freeze it for up to 3 months.
