Pumpkin soup

Welcome to my first recipe blog post! Before I start with the actual recipe, I first want to tell you why I choose a soup recipe for my first food post.

I´m in love with soups! Even in summer my favourite meal is a cold soup called Okroschka (Russian). Similar to smoothies also soups can have a large amount of nutrients, fiber and vitamins, but also feel light in the stomach. Especially when you´re sick, soups are excellent!

A pumpkin soup in the falltime is indispensable! Can you feel the autumn vibes? I can ! So here is my creation of a pumpkin soup – et voilà:


  • 1 medium Hokkaido pumpkin
  • about 5 large carrots
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/2 buch chives
  • 1 ginger (about 4 inches)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tin coconut milk
  • 1 – 2 table spoon mild paprika powder
  • about 1 pint vegetable broth (maybe a little bit more)

In addition: oil, salt, pepper, herbal mixture, pumpkin seeds, (nutmeg)

          *some are estimated because not all the ingredients have the same size, feel free to decide on your own


  1. peel and core the pumpkin
  2. peel the ginger and the garlic and chop up all together with the chives
  3. cut the pumpkin, carrots and the sweet potato into cubes
  4. put all the ingredients into a big sized pot with oil and cook it for 2 – 5 minutes
  5. add the paprika powder and the herbal mixture
  6. deglaze with vegetable stock and let everything simmer for about 20 minutes until the ingredients are soft
  7. now puree directly in the pot with a hand blender
  8. stir in the coconut milk
  9. heat the mixture up a again and season it with salt, pepper and nutmeg – serve

Then arrange the soup with roasted pumpkin seeds and / or pumpkin seed oil. This is delicious in combination with a  fresh and warm ciabatta bread!

If you want to enjoy this delicacy on nice relaxing dinner with wine and candlelight, I recommend you to drink a delicious fruity sweet Muscat wine!

Wow, this must be tasty, but probably time-consuming, right?
