Tasty Spiced Roasted Pumpkin Soup Simply Delicious

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

This rich Roast Pumpkin Soup is full of natural goodness and decadent flavours. Aside from being vegan, it’s also gluten-free and sugar-free. Any sugars in this soup are from the naturally occurring sugars in the vegetables which are very good for you. It can be eaten as a light lunch or an accompaniment for dinner.

This tasty soup is pretty yummy to eat anytime of the year, however pumpkins aren’t always ready available during any season. They can usually be found around Halloween, so to combat this short supply you can use butternut or kabocha squash instead. Butternut and kabocha squash are as tasty as pumpkin, but have lighter flavours.

This soup is deliciously smooth thanks to the pumpkin and coconut cream, and it’s lightly spiced making it very refreshing. Pumpkin being a meaty vegetable is prized among vegan’s.

There’s nothing quite like a sweet rich bowl of pumpkin soup topped with cooked bacon. Other foods you can use are sour cream, Roast Pumpkin Seeds from the pumpkin itself, chopped mixed nuts, croutons or try making this Keto Bread Loaf to go with it…the world is your oyster here.


It’s recommended to roast rather than use canned pumpkin puree because the consistency and flavour will be huge, so where possible always roast for maximum flavour. Once roasted pumpkins become silky soft, super sweet and rich compared to canned lacking sweetness and richness.

If you’re absolutely pushed for time and it’s not possible to roast a pumpkin or squash, substitute with two to three cans of pumpkin purée and add a tablespoon of maple syrup per can.

Wherever possible use organic vegetables because not only are they’re void of bad pesticides and herbicides, but they’re much tastier. Your organic soup will be full of nutrients and more yummy flavours.

This soup can be made in a saucepan or a soup maker. If you own a Thermomix, then it’s as easy as throwing all the ingredients in, cook for 25 minutes on setting 4, then blend on high.
