Pumpkin Soup with Dukkah Croutons – Thermomix & regular recipes

Pumpkin-Soup-web

You know it’s turned cooler when you feel like some pumpkin soup don’t you?  I’ve just inhaled two bowls of it!

I’m sure everyone has a favourite pumpkin soup recipe, this one is mine – it ends up more like being an orange (as in the colour) vegetable soup!  It’s quite a thick soup and really tummy warming.  BUT to make it a bit more flashy I’ve added some Dukkah Croutons, they add some extra crunch and flavour to the soup – try them in a salad as well, that would be delish.  Go here for the Dukkah Crouton recipe.

The recipe serves 6 (can be frozen for up to 3 months)

Time Saving Tip: Save some pumpkin for cooking and pureeing & then freezing to use in Chicken & Pumpkin Sausage Rolls or Pumpkin Chai Loaf .

Here you go (scroll down for Thermomix method)…

What you need:

1 leek finely sliced (white part only)

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

splash of olive oil

2 celery stalks, roughly chopped

650 gram (approx)  butternut pumpkin, cut into chunks

1 small sweet potato, cut into chunks

2  carrots, roughly sliced

1 litre salt reduced chicken stock (or homemade)

1 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp ground cumin seeds

1 tsp nutmeg

season with sea salt and pepper

fresh parsley (if you don’t want the croutons)

dollop of sour cream (optional)

What you do:

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan and sauté the leeks, once starting to go translucent add in the garlic and stir.
  2. Add cumin and ginger and stir again until fragrant
  3. Add chicken stock, pumpkin, potato, sweet potato and carrots and bring to boil, stirring occasionally
  4. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes or until vegetables are soft and mashable adding extra water if required.
  5. Add nutmeg, salt and pepper
  6. Turn off the heat and with a stick blender puree into a thick soup.
  7. Serve into bowls and garnish with fresh parsley.

    Pumpkin soup is a perennial favourite in this house – in fact, I just popped a batch in the freezer yesterday for this week’s dinners! – but with dukkah croutons sounds even better, Vicki! Dukkah somehow seems to make everything taste even better!!

    WE love a good soup recipe and I think that pumpkin would have to be a favourite {especially with the boys and the always picky husband}.

      I love the Thermo for soups – it’s still really hot here but I’ve been souping away anyway!
