Orange Roasted Pumpkin Soup | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

This bright golden-coloured, creamy pumpkin soup is perfect for a light lunch with some crusty artisan bread rolls. Roasted pumpkin, potato and spices work together creating a rich depth of flavour and creamy texture without addition of heavy cream.

  • 1 kg Hokkaido pumpkin, peeled, deseeded, cut into 1cm pieces
  • 3 tbsp Walnut oil
  • 1 Potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 Onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 clove Garlic, chopped
  • 1 Cayenne chilli pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 1 tbsp Curry powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1 l Vegetable stock
  • 250 ml Orange juice
  • 100 ml Milk
  • Salt and cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Lime juice
  • Roasted pumpkin seeds
  • Chives
  • Chilli threads
  1. Preheat oven to 190C/375F. Place pumpkin and potato in a roasting pan. Drizzle over 2 tablespoons of walnut oil and toss to coat. Roast for 30 minutes or until tender.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft. Add in garlic, pepper, curry, and coriander powder. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until aromatic.
  3. Add in pumpkin, potato, stock, orange juice and milk. Cook, covered, over medium heat for about 25 minutes. Blend the mixture in a food processor or with a handheld blender until smooth. Season with salt, cayenne pepper and lime juice. Ladle among serving bowls. Top with roasted pumpkin seeds, chopped chives, and chilli threads. | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

nancy at good food matters 15/9/11 15:50

Today really feels like fall where I live---overcast, breezy, with a chill in the air. Your hearty soup would be so welcome for dinner. I like the flavor combinations--and the lack of cream in this recipe. Very very nice!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 16/9/11 15:24

I don't know what variety of pumpkin but I'm guessing any local variety would work in this wonderful recipe. I saw lots of pumpkins at the farmers' market yesterday and there's a chill in the air this week so soup season is definitely upon us. The flavors in your lovely soup sound delicious!
