  • Peel and dice the pumpkin, carrots, onions and garlic and fry them in oil for one minute in a large sauce pan. If you’re not sure how to slice a pumpkin/squash. (You don't necessarily have to peel the squash, but it will taste nicer without it.)

  • Bring it to boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for 15-18 mins until everything is tender. If you are using pre-cooked lentils wait until the last couple of minutes to add them and their juice.
  • Use a hand blender and blend it until smooth then season with salt and pepper
    Salt and pepper to taste
  • Serve with some bread on the side (well if you want to. We won’t force you!) and if you have them, add some roasted pumpkin seeds and drizzle a little pumpkin oil on the top for a much more intense pumpkin taste.

Pumpkin Soup Recipes FAQ

If you need to know how to store homemade pumpkin soup or how to make it taste better, here are some answers that might help.

Is pumpkin soup healthy for you?

Yes, most pumpkin soups are healthy for you, if they’re made with simple and wholesome ingredients.

Pumpkin itself packs some impressive health benefits. It’s super nutritious and has relatively few calories.

Pumpkin contains vitamins A, B2, C, and E, iron, magnesium, potassium, and plenty of fiber. It’s also high in a powerful antioxidant – beta-carotene which can protect your skin from UV rays, help your body fight infections and improve metabolic health.

A healthy pumpkin soup can also be a good idea for a weight loss meal (and if that’s what you’re after, try these filling low calorie soups recipes too!). Check out our free 7-day vegetarian weight loss meal plan to learn more about losing weight by eating right.

How many calories are in pumpkins?

A cup of uncooked pumpkin contains only 30 calories.

A cup of canned pumpkin without salt contains 83 calories.

What spice goes well with pumpkin?

Pumpkin pairs well with warm winter spices – dried or fresh thyme, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, turmeric, cloves, ginger, garam masala, sage, cumin, vanilla and chilli.

How do you make pumpkin soup thicker?

You can thicken pumpkin soup by adding flour or cornstarch, and root vegetables (carrots, potatoes, rutabagas, sweet potatoes, turnips).

Beans and rice can work well as thickeners too and add extra richness.

How long does pumpkin soup last in the fridge?

Pumpkin soup can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days.

You can also make a double batch and freeze the leftover soup for about 3 months. But if it contains any dairy products (sour cream, heavy cream, yogurt, milk, or cheese) remember that they don’t always freeze well.
