petite pumpkin soup

I’m back! 🙂 In case you missed, I was doing a small tour of Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand 🙂 I’ve picked up on some amazing culinary practices I can’t wait to do here at home and share with everyone on the blog. 🙂

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe given by my aunty. It’s one of those eyeballed recipes, where perfect measurements aren’t really important. I promise I’ll move away from orange-coloured recipes soon (in case you’ve haven’t realised, I’ve posted sweet chilli fries, a peach tart, and now, pumpkin soup!)

As a final note, depending on how thick or thin you like your soup, leave it to simmer between 45 and 60 mins.

Serves: 4


300g kent pumpkin, peeled and diced into 2cm cubes

1 medium-large brown onion, finely diced

1 tbs oil (rice bran, or olive)

2 medium-large potatoes, peeled and diced into 2cm cubes

salt and pepper to taste

cream to garnish lemon wedges to serve, if desired



Add oil and onion into a non-stick heavy based saucepan on medium-high heat, and sauté until onion softens, stirring often.

Add in the pumpkin and potato cubes, and immerse with tap water.

Add salt and pepper to taste and cover. Let simmer for 45-60 minutes on medium-low heat, stirring through every 15 minutes, until the water reduces down by a 1/4.

    It sounds like the trip was fantastic … I shall have to catchup on my blog reading and see what you posted last time :-). My mum made pumpkin soup like this when I was a kid too and I love it still. When the weather starts to cool here I’m definitely going to be keeping a few little pumpkins in the pantry.

    BTW happy new year m’dear.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. Barb, I bought a Canon 600D on 30 March 2012 and have since posted recipes using photos I’ve taken with it. I did buy a 50mm lens in October last year, which might be where the magic was hidden 🙂 Thank you!
