Roasted Pumpkin Soup with Garlic Croutons

Story behind this blog post :-

Soup is always an exciting meal for the whole family in my house, have always considered it as warm hearty meal. Can you believe that I had to make this soup twice to take the pictures?? hahah..that’s the life of a food blogger 😉 In this autumn season, made this pumpkin soup last week and I guess we all were super hungry and we ended up eating it and I couldn’t take the pictures. Looking at the positive side of it is , I ended up making it again this week and kids were super excited for the soup. It has been in demand and could take the pictures of this delicious roasted pumpkin soup.



The texture, flavor and garnishing worked so well :-

I am glad to share the recipe with you all. Hope you would like to give it a try 🙂 Consistency of the soup shouldn’t be too watery or runny, always consider making the consistency little thicker. It taste better and quite filling as well. Haven’t made the soup as whole puree, left little bit of chunks to get the texture, however it’s a personal choice , you may make it into puree and serve 🙂

Considering some salad with soup , here is Turmeric Beetroot salad  or Chia Balsamic Beetroot Salad Or Prefer making Roasted Butternut Risotto recipe instead?? 

Here is the recipe :-

  • 1,5 Kg pumpkin - diced and deseeded
  • 1 Teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2- 3 Big cloves of garlic
  • 1 Medium sized red onion - diced
  • Olive oil – drizzle
  • 600 Ml water
  • 1 veg stock cube If don't have vegetable stock then use veg stock cube
  • Sea salt as per the taste
  • Black pepper as per the taste
For Garnishing:
  • Chives – handful
  • 110 gm Mushrooms - whole mushroom {slice it when it has been roasted}
For Garlic croutons
  • 3 slices of your favorite bread
  • 2 small - Smashed garlic cloves
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  1. Preheat the oven at 225 C.
Make Garlic Croutons :-
  1. Cut the bread into small pieces. Add olive oil and garlic in a small bowl.

    Mix all 3 ingredients and pop it in the oven at 225 C until the bread becomes crispy.

Method for the soup -
  1. Cut the pumpkin half , deseed it and dice it into pieces.
  2. In an oven proof dish, add diced pumpkins, diced onions, mushrooms , garlic cloves, all the spices, sea salt, black pepper, drizzle of olive oil and pop the dish in the oven. Roast it for 40-45 minutes.

  3. When pumpkin in the baking dish becomes soft and ready. Take it out of the oven.
  4. Take a pan, add 600 ml water, boil it and break the stock cube and put it in the boiling water and let the stock cube mix well in the water. Turn off the heat. If you have vegetable stock ready in the refrigerator then don't require to use stock cube. Just reheat the vegetable stock and mix in the soup puree.

  5. With the help of a food processor or a hand mixer, blend the roasted pumpkin, if required add some vegetable stock to churn it and add the smooth paste in the boiled water. Boil it for couple of minutes.Add more seasoning if required. I prefer having little bit of texture, I don't puree all of the soup.

  6. Garnish it with chives, mushrooms and garlic croutons. Serve hot with some bread.

Recipe Notes

- Garlic croutons and pumpkin could be popped in the oven together to save the time in different dishes and when croutons are done, take them out of the oven.

- Slice the mushrooms when they have been roasted and then use it for garnishing.
