Smoky Pumpkin Soup Recipe for The Big Broth

We’ve been working on a delicious smoky pumpkin soup recipe that’s just perfect for the occasion! 

Roast Pumpkin Soup Ingredients

  • 4 cups of chopped pumpkin flesh – or use butternut squash
  • 3 carrots – peeled and sliced into batons
  • 2 leeks – sliced into chunks
  • 1 onion – sliced into wedges
  • 2 celery sticks – sliced into quarters
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 1 pint hot vegetable stock

How to make our easy pumpkin soup recipe

  • Preheat the oven to 200C
  • Add all the chopped vegetables to a roasting tin – drizzle over the olive oil, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Get your hands in and toss everything together so it’s all nicely coated.
  • Roast in the oven for around 20 – 25 minutes or until tender and starting to brown.
  • Tip the roast vegetables into a blender – scrape all the brown bits and oil into the blender too – it adds to the flavour.
  • Blitz the soup whilst pouring hot vegetable stock into the blender bowl – add more stock if you like a smoother soup.
  • Once smooth – pour into a pan for serving.
