Better pumpkin soup in the world. You can see the pumpkins that I used in the photos.I was so surprised that are so good. I don’t know the name of this type of pumpkin, but it is so good.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line one baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat it with 1 tablespoon butter, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon water. Season flesh of pumpkins generously with salt; place cut-side down on sheet. Roast until tender, 30 to 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter in pan. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic, turmeric  and nutmeg. Cook and stir frequently, for 2 minutes. Set aside.

When pumpkin is cool enough to handle, using a spoon, scrape flesh from skin into the pan. Stir in stock, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce to a simmer, and cook over low heat for 30 minutes. Blend soup using an immersion blender or in batches in a blender. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the soup with pumpkin seeds and cheese. Enjoy!

    1. Lots of anti-inflammatory properties in turmuric. It sounds like this recipe would provide a good boost to the immune system in the Fall when we most need it to fight off those colds! I wonder if this would work with butternut squash or acorn squash

  1. Beautiful photography. I just made pumpkin soup, but I used thyme and paprika. Love the idea of using turmeric!

  2. This looks awesome! Just today I’ve been trying to come up with ways to cook with turmeric for my dad, who is recovering from injury. We came up with a really successful tropical turmeric smoothie, which pretty much tasted like a piña colada! We’ll have to give this one a go next.

  3. I must say, I absolutely love your pictures! And one thing for sure, for my pumpkin soup I just LOOOVE the taste of pepper with it. I don’t know for the nutmeg and the tumeric! I’ll have to try that out!

  4. This soup looks soooooo delicious!! I’ll definitely try this because I just love the idea of combining turmeric which is my favourite spice with pumpkin. Great recipe, I love it!!
