With Halloween just around the corner, this roasted pumpkin soup (and the adorable pumpkin soup bowl they are served  in) got to make its starry spotlight on the blog. I adore the taste of the natural pumpkin sweetness in this soup, which is further draw out by roasting the pumpkins beforehand.

Using the basic pumpkin puree (made by blending the roasted pumpkin), I made two versions of soup with it – one which is chunkier (almost gravy like) for the one who loves chunky soups, and a creamier and smoother version (think cream of chicken type of consistency) for me. With the basic puree, you can adjust the amount of soup stock and cream added to achieve the consistency that you like.

I also spread some of the thick pumpkin puree on toasted baguette slices (pictured above) to accompany the soup. Yummy!

Pumpkin Soup in Pumpkin Bowl Recipe

To make pumpkin soup bowls, get mini pumpkins, carefully cut off the top, use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and strings, and use a paring knife to scoop out the flesh out all round. I bought my mini pumpkin from Vivomart; you can also find them at selected Cold Storage or Jasons outlets (Singapore) during the Halloween season (month of October).

    Delicious. I’ve made pumpkin soup in the tiny pumpkins before, but my recipe does not call for white wine. I think that would be a pretty darned good addition. I’ll have to try that this fall.

      I find that white wine adds a really nice touch to western soups … hope you like it too ;)

    Is whipping cream the same as the thickened cream u mentioned in the recipe?
    Thanks for sharing..


    • wiffy replied: — April 27th, 2010 @ 5:19 pm

      Hi Lilacz, I don’t think it’s exactly the same thing but I think you can use whipping cream (whipped till it’s thick).

    Hi! The chicken broth u mentioned in your receipe, is it the chicken stock diluted with water, which is as mentioned in the Cream of portobello mushroom soup receipe? Thanks! Anw your mushroom soup receipe is great! =)


    • wiffy replied: — April 4th, 2011 @ 12:53 pm

      Hi there, I meant normal chicken stock, either home made, or those tetra pak store bought ones. No need to dilute. The other one needs diluting because I was using concentrated mushroom sauce and the instructions stated to dilute with water to make the broth :)
