Pumpkin soup

Preparing the pumpkin soup is really simple and, thanks to the skilful use of the aromas, you will get an amazing first course.

The days are getting shorter and the evenings are getting cooler: autumn has arrived and has brought with it many typical vegetables of this period such as pumpkins . That’s why we decided to offer you the pumpkin soup, a first course that is simple to make but rich in taste thanks to the skilful use of aromatic herbs and aromas. In fact, the pumpkin, with its sweet flavor, needs to be supported by stronger flavors.

We thus experimented with a yellow pumpkin soup flavored with a sautéed garlic and leek and scented with rosemary and black pepper . We were pleasantly surprised with the result and so here we are sharing with you all the steps to prepare this first dish with pumpkin. Are you ready?

How to prepare the pumpkin soup recipe

  1. First, remove the leek’s final beard and outermost layer. Then reduce it into slices and chop coarsely with a knife.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the oil with the garlic clove and brown the leek. By adding a pinch of salt you will favor this step.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the pumpkin into rather small chunks (about 1 cm per side) so as to speed up cooking as well.
  4. Add it to the pan together with the rosemary and brown it for a couple of minutes over a high flame. When finished, remove the garlic clove.
  5. Cover with water , add salt and cook for 15 minutes or until the pumpkin begins to soften.
  6. Remove the sprig of rosemary and with the immersion blender give a quick blend (it is important to keep a few pieces of pumpkin).
  7. Add the pasta (both fresh and dry pasta are fine) and cook according to the times indicated on the package and to your taste.
  8. Serve completing to taste with a round of raw oil and a grind of pepper.

Also try the creamier version, prepared without pasta, of a classic first course with pumpkin: the velvety .


Pumpkin soup should be eaten right now . If you have any leftovers, consume it the next day by heating it in a pot for a few minutes but keep in mind that you may need to add water.
