This is a tried and true pumpkin soup recipe. A thick soup almost a puree is a meal in itself, ideal with just some bread on the side. You can give or take with listed ingredients to your liking. Play around as you come to the final stages of soup; add a bit more sugar or curry powder etc.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 whole pumpkin of your choice
  • 2 onions
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (optional) as a paste or chopped cloves
  • 400g bacon rashers, cut into small pieces

  • 400ml thickened cream, or more to taste
  • 1-3 tablespoons sugar (optional)
