Servings 6 servings
Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 35 mins
Total Time 55 mins


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion , minced
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 medium carrot , chopped
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 ¼ cup fresh roasted pumpkin puree
  • 3 ½ cups vegetable stock
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1 small red chili pepper
  • salt and freshly ground pepper

For Serving

  • Creme fraiche
  • Bread croutons
  • Toasted pumpkin seeds
  • Lemon juice


  • Prepare the pumpkin bowls. Cut off the top and use a spoon to scoop out all the seeds. Sprinkle salt inside the pumpkins and place with flesh down on a baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C). Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until tender, not too tender to still keep their shape as bowls.
  • Heat oil in a medium stock pot over medium-high heat, and cook onion for about 5 minutes until soft. Add carrot and garlic and saute for another 3-5 minutes. Stir in paprika.
  • Add pumpkin puree, vegetable stock, chili pepper and ginger and bring to boil. Reduce to low, cover and simmer for about 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, cool slightly and then using a vertical blender or a food processor puree the soup. Add salt and pepper.
  • Pour the hot soup into small pumpkin bowls or regular bowls and garnish with creme fraiche. Serve with bread croutons or toasted pumpkin seeds and lemon juice.

    This was great! A bit of nutmeg really sets the flavors off, but do it at the end and just add small amounts at a time or else it will overpower the soup. I would also recommend adding an extra clove garlic as it really brings out a bit more flavor. Serve this with a good quality french bread stick (should be very hard on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside).
