Recipe Notes

Variations you can try

Herbs and Spices

Try adding other Spices that you like or a good Curry Powder - I like Madras.

Try adding Herbs. Sage and Thyme work well with Pumpkin but I would cut back on the Spices if using Herbs.


Try adding Leeks, Sweet potato, Potato or Carrots.

Try using Potato and Coconut Milk combined for a Hokkaido Pumpkin Soup.


Use an alternative to Cream such as Coconut Milk, Milk, Sour Cream or Coconut Cream.

How to serve Pumpkin Ginger Soup

This Pumpkin Soup is delicious served with Croutons, Garlic Bread, Soft Pretzels or a Crusty Bread such as this one.

Or you can simply eat it with a spoon with a sprinkling of toasted Seeds.


Pumpkin Soup keeps well in the fridge for 4 days and can be frozen up to 3 months.

Just allow to come to room temperature and then thaw in the microwave or on the hob.

You may need to add a little water or stock when reheating.
