Pumpkin Soup


  • 1.2 kg pumpkin (any), unpeeled weight
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled whole
  • 3 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup cream or milk


  1.  Cut the pumpkin into 3cm slices. Cut the skin off and scrape seeds out. Cut into chunks.
  2.   Place the pumpkin, onion, garlic, broth and water in a pot – liquid won’t cover all the pumpkin. Bring to the boil, uncovered, then reduce heat and let simmer rapidly until pumpkin is tender.
  3. Remove from heat and use a stick blender or blender to blend until smooth.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir through cream.
  5.  Ladle soup into bowls, drizzle over a bit  of cream, sprinkle with pepper and  parsley if desired and enjoy!
