Pumpkin Sweet Potato Soup

An easy, healthy and super delicious roasted pumpkin sweet potato soup

Jump to Recipe

This pumpkin sweet potato soup is no ordinary autumn or winer soup. Packed with amazing aromatics, herbs and spices, every spoonful wraps the palate with warmth and outstanding flavor. Not to mention, it’s easy to make and healthy with loads of vitamin A and C plus high in protein and fiber.

The small baby pumpkin, usually labeled as “pumpkin pie” pumpkin worked beautifully for two reasons. First, it’s small and produces just the right amount of peeled and chopped flesh. Additionally it’s sweet. The addition of red sweet potato balanced the overall sweetness of the soup. Red sweet potatoes are less sweeter than the yellow ones and a perfect match for the sweet pumpkin.

Similar to this outrageously delicious Roasted Carrots Tomatoes Soup, the pumpkin sweet potato soup uses porcini powder which added rich flavor to the stock base. Furthermore, adding cumin for earthy flavoring and red pepper flakes to balance sweetness worked brilliantly. What’s more, the addition of maple syrup and fresh sage resulted in a splendid palate pleasing flavor going where no taste have gone before. The rich earthiness, mint, lemony, peppery taste of sage made its mark in the stock base as well as the roasted pumpkin and red sweet potato.

How to bring out maximum flavoring in this pumpkin sweet potato soup?

An important aspect to extract maximum flavors in the pumpkin soup, included roasting the vegetables before adding it to the amazing porcini flavored infused stock base. The combined roasted vegetables and stock are pureed until it reaches an amazing creamy texture. The mixture can be pureed using an immersion blender or a Vitamin Blender. If interested, the Breville Control Grip Immersion Blender is my personal favorite. It’s super easy to use and clean up is a breeze.

For a rich creamy texture, we love the soup on the thicker side of the creaminess. However, add water to make a thinner soup. Additionally, the soup is served topped with toasted pumpkin seeds, sliced scallions and drizzle extra virgin olive oil. The toasted pumpkin seeds made for an amazing nutty taste with a popcorn airy crunch. All around this is the best pumpkin soup. Give it a try and let me know your thoughts. Happy Cooking!
