What Are The Best Spices For Pumpkin Soup?

The spices that you add to the pumpkin soup will add a lovely warmth to this recipe. Either use a premade powder mix or add a few of your favourite spices.

Ginger, either fresh or ground; cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, cayenne, cumin; and coriander

Add around 2 teaspoons of ground spices (combined), or if you like a more intense taste, add 3 teaspoons.

What Is The Best Pumpkin For Soup?

I wouldn’t recommend carving pumpkins for soup (or any other pumpkin recipes); they don’t tend to have much flavour. Instead, look for a cooking or culinary pumpkin, which will be much sweeter and tastier.

If you can’t find any suitable pumpkins, you can use butternut squash or another type of squash instead.

The weight of the pumpkin chunks after peeling it was 625g.

Should You Roast The Pumpkin?

Roasting the pumpkin before adding it to the soup maker will enhance the taste. If you want to add this step, quarter the pumpkin and remove the seeds.

Keep the skin on and brush the flesh with a little oil. Place the quarters on a baking tray and cook in a preheated oven (180°C), cooking for about 25 to 30 minutes.

You can also roast pumpkin in an air fryer; I roasted mine for 20 minutes at 180°C.

At the end of the cooking time, the pumpkin flesh should be soft; a fork will easily pierce it. Leave the cooked pumpkin to cool slightly so that you can handle it before peeling off the skin.

Making The Pumpkin Soup

Add all the ingredients, apart from the cream (if using), to the soup maker. If your soup maker has a sauté function, you can gently fry the onions and garlic before adding the remaining ingredients, but this step isn’t mandatory.

I prefer to add the stock pot or cube directly to the soup maker, placing it on top of the ingredients. I then fill the soup maker up to the ‘max’ line with hot water. The amount you add will vary depending on your soup maker’s capacity as well as the volume of your ingredients.

Place the lid on the soup maker and set it off on the smooth function.

Once the soup maker has finished, remove the lid and pour the soup into bowls. Optionally, stir in some cream.
