Thermomix Pumpkin Soup

Published , Last Updated

Yes, it’s a big claim but this Thermomix pumpkin soup is really the best pumpkin soup ever! It has a lush silky texture, full flavour, and bright orange colour. Perfect for wintery nights!

Pumpkin soup is a really easy dish to prepare in the Thermomix. It’s simply a matter of adding all the ingredients to the Thermomix bowl, cooking, blending, and serving. I’m claiming that my Thermomix pumpkin soup is the best because it includes secret ingredients that give the soup a lift.

What pumpkin is best for pumpkin soup?

The pumpkin you use will make a big difference to the soup. I like butternut pumpkin for soup because the hard flesh has less moisture and won’t dilute the soup. The butternut pumpkin is also sweeter variety with a strong pumpkin flavour. Best of all, it doesn’t become “stringy” when boiled, so your soup will be smooth.

Secret Ingredient 1.

My first secret ingredient butternut pumpkin. Beautifully sweet and dense.

What makes pumpkin soup extra creamy?

Some recipes use cream or milk in the soup to add a creamier texture. I find that using dairy takes away some of the rich pumpkin flavour. I use a little bit of cream as a garnish, but it’s really just to make the soup look pretty.

Secret Ingredient 2.

The second secret ingredient is potatoes. Potato is the key to this recipe’s silky texture. When the potato is boiled and blended it helps give the soup body and a lovely smooth texture.

Pumpkin Soup Colour!

The best pumpkin soups have a gorgeous vibrant orange colour. I see people roasting pumpkin to try and achieve an intense colour and flavour but roasting completely changes the flavour of the soup and “dirties” the orange. So please don’t roast your pumpkin when you want pumpkin soup. A cleaner, brighter flavour and colour is achieved by simply boiling the soup.

Secret Ingredient 3.

The final secret ingredient is a carrot! Including a carrot keeps the clean, vibrant orange colour. Carrots have a similar sweet flavour, so it helps the soup by adding another element that doesn’t compete with the pumpkin flavour.

What to serve with pumpkin soup

There is nothing better than dipping something in your soup. My family loves eating this Thermomix pumpkin soup with bread! A crusty bread roll covered in butter, or a toasted cheese sandwich to dip. Hubby would eat a whole loaf of garlic bread with his soup if the kids would give him the chance.

I prefer not to eat a lot of bread so I have a different approach. I serve my soup with steamed vegetables like broccoli and green beans. If you’re trying to save calories this is a great alternative to bread. Plus, the steamed vegetables are delicious dipped in the soup. When you dip the broccoli in the soup it soaks into the florets and is absolutely delicious.

Add the broccoli and beans to the Varoma. Place the Varoma on the Thermomix when you see steam coming out of the MC. Leave them to steam until they’re cooked to your liking. I prefer mine to be still crispy.

  4. Emily says:

    I need to serve 10-12…could I double this in a TM5 or would I need to make 2 batches and reheat on the stove?

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      HI Emily
      The recipe fills most of the TM bowl so I wouldn’t double it, you might get an overflow. Just make 2 batches and keep the first batch in the Thermoserver while you make the second. It will still be piping hot 🙂
      Happy Cooking
