Pumpkin's in season! Boiled, baked, steamed or rosted, this fantastic squash is very versatile and can be cooked in so many different ways, I never have enough!
Children love it because of its colour, sweet taste and - of course - because it reminds them of Halloween.
Today I came up with a very simple Thermomix Pumpkin Soup, a classic, easy and quick meal that we all know and love.
Serve it hot or cold, with cream, cheese, croutons or all of the above and be sure to make the whole family happy. The procedure is quite standard, very similar to the Pumpkin and Carrot Soup.

Ingredients- 1 Onion
- 40 gr Olive Oil
- 1 kg Pumpkin
- 1 tbsp Thermomix Stock
- 800 gr Water
- Fresh Parsley to taste
Let's make our Pumpkin SoupFirst, we need some clear stock: pour the water into the mixing bowl and add Thermomix Stock 5 Min 100° Speed Soft. Put aside.
Cut the pumpkin into big chunks. Put aside.
Put the onion into the mixing bowl. 2 Sec. Speed.7
Add the olive oil and the pumpkin. 6 Min 100° Speed.1.
Add the stock. 20 Min. 100° Speed 1, then. 15 Sec. Speed 7.
If you want to adjust the texture, you can use the Varoma function. I generally do 20 Min. Temp. Varoma Speed 1.
Sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving.
Serve with Thermomix Half-Hour Bread, and why don't you try the Thermomix Nut Butter with it?
My AdvicePumpkin Soup goes well with many types of soft cheese and nuts. When I serve this soup, I like to make a platter with bread, brie, camembert, cashews and wall-nuts and put it at the table for some side nibbling.
