Classic fruity pumpkin soup with potatoes

Our simple pumpkin soup with Hokkaido, potatoes and carrots is a classic. It’s vegan, low in calories and filling, yet it doesn’t lack in hearty flavor. A dash of orange juice and apple give it a delicious fruity touch that harmonizes perfectly with the pumpkin.

Potato and pumpkin soup – quickly made

The potato makes the soup very filling and gives it a base. For an even richer soup, you can also increase the number of potatoes and add a little more stock. Pumpkin soup with potatoes is a classic version, as both varieties have always been available in autumn and winter.

Peel hookaido pumpkin?

Hokkaido squash

The Hokkaido pumpkin has a very thin skin, which you can eat without hesitation. Before cooking, you only need to wash it well from the outside, cut it in half, remove the core and the strings with a tablespoon and cut it into pieces.

If you still want to peel it, a potatoe peeler is perfect for that.

Roasted pumpkin soup

To boost the flavour, you can roast or grill your pumpkin before mashing it.

What goes with it?

A blob of (possibly vegan) cream, toasted pumpkin seeds or baked thin potato slices are great for serving. Home-baked white bread or pretzel rolls as a side dish make our pumpkin soup simply good.

Sprinkle a few herbs on top to taste, parsley, basil or chives go especially well.

Bon appétit!
