Soup week: Pumpkin Soup

Hello all!

The first recipe in the Soup week is Pumpkin Soup.

The first time when I was introduced to Pumpkin Soup by my mother-in-law, I was very  sceptical to try it but all my doubts were put to rest when I tasted it!

This is one great recipe and considering all the health benefits, we decided to add it to the soup week at besties.

Health benefits of Pumpkin


Pumpkin Soup

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 3 cups Pumpkin Cubes
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • a mix of herbs (oregano, basil, parsley)
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh cream (optional)

For Garnishing

– Fresh cream
– Basil leaves


  1. Heat butter in a pan, add onions and sauté for few minutes. Keep aside.
  2. Add the pumpkin in the same pan and sauté for few more minutes.
  3. Add 3 cups of water and cook the pumpkin till its tender.
  4. Cool it down and blend to a smooth purée.
  5. Add the onions, herbs, salt, pepper to the pumpkin purée.
  6. Add fresh cream in the end and bring to boil.

  • I like the small onion chunks in my soup, some people prefer to blend it with the purée, it’s your personal choice.
  • You can also pressure cook pumpkin cubes for a quick recipe.
  • For toddlers, you can also add finely chopped and sautéed bell peppers, beans and other vegetables to the recipe.
  • If not serving immediately, add some milk and reheat the soup while serving.

We hope you all like it!

  1. I love pumpkins! They’re all over the place right now here in Korea, too. Though I use coconut oil and/or coconut milk in mine (obsessed with Thai food and that extra sweetness!) but really, pumpkins always taste great. 🙂

  2. My friends from France were simply amazed at the abundance of pumpkins in my area. They don’t celebrate Halloween much, and their pumpkins are sold by the wedge, at a premium price. I brought them to a pumpkin field and they were taken aback! We use pumpkin for many recipes, and this variance of pumpkin soup seems quite simple, and looks great! I will make it this weekend!
