Rebecca's Pumpkin Soup

So after making the pumpkin infused cous cous I had another half of a New Zealand winter squash to use, I simply kept in the fridge till the next day and preceded to make a simple soup with it.

So happy I have begun cooking with pumpkin and squash lots of fun and it truly adds a rich, sweet taste. Its one of my favorite times of year with the leaves changing, mild weather and pumpkin patches America's love of fall is infectious and puts a smile on my face.

  • half a roasted New Zealand winter squash 
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 a chopped red onion
  • 1/2 a glass of white wine
  • one teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup of fresh orange juice and one tablespoon of orange zest

  1. saute onion and garlic in olive oil, add the squash for 10 minutes 
  2. then add the stock, wine, orange juice and zest and boil for 10 minutes 
  3. then blend the soup with a hand blender 
  4. serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy :-)

  1. You make me want to change my dinner plans. That looks so good and autumn-fresh, I am in love.

  2. Que sopa tan apetitosa, esto se ve exquisito del todo.


  3. I love the fall. =) =) Such a great and flavorful recipe.

  4. This is so inviting...especially with you holding out a bowl for me to take. Can I come over for dinner? Please!!! I love your recipe, sounds like it brings out the pumpkin flavor.

    I made pumpkin soup for a lunch at school (where I work) and this one co-worker was so disappointed in it, I think she expected it to taste like pumpkin pie, or something. I use coconut milk and had some chili peppers and ginger and I think some Indian spices. Tossed some pepitas on top...not good for her, everyone else loved it though. Isn't it funny how that one disappointment sticks out for me?

    I'm still coming over to try your! Cheers!

  5. Pumpkin soup is always a winner for cooler nights...look very warm and comforting!

  6. Love the soup! BTW, do you use a lot of winter squash in the UK or is it a US thing?

  7. How much actual squash would that come out to if you measured it? I have a huge pumpkin that I'm about to cook and definitely want to make soup for one of its tasty uses.

  8. The soup looks delicious and you are so pretty in the last photo..
