Spicy Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkins are the perfect vegetable super healthy, and they blend so well for a wonderful thick and flavorful soup, this soup is made from a butternut squash and blue hubbard squash and has a fun kick with the addition of curry powder.


  • one small blue hubbard squash
  • one small butternut squash
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped
  • one small onion chopped
  • 3 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of masala, curry powder amount depends on desired heat
  • pistachios to garnish 
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • a pinch of cumin powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1.  cut the squash in half and place in an oven proof dish with a little water roast for about 20 min at 400 until soft, when cooked allow to cool and dice.
  2. heat a little olive oil and saute the onions, ginger and garlic for 3-4 minutes
  3. then add the squash pieces with the stock, cumin and curry powder turn down to a simmer for 20 minutes 
  4. then blend the soup, season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with pistachio nuts
