  • 2 Cup diced yellow pumpkin
  • 1 onion, cut into half
  • 1 garlic pod, cut into half
  • 2 - 3 sprigs of rosemary
  • 4 Cup vegetable stock
  • ¼ Cup coconut milk or heavy cream
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • ¼ Cup olive oil


  • Preparing Pumpkin:
  • Start off with washing and wiping the pumpkin. Carefully, cut it into halves.
  • Using a spoon, remove the seeds and fibers from the center of the pumpkin. If a pumpkin is of a little bigger in size, then slice it into the quarter.
    Roasting Pumpkin

How To Roast Pumpkin:

  • Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees Celcius.
  • Place the pumpkin slices in a baking tray. Place a 2 - 3 sprig of rosemary along with a whole garlic pod and onion in between pumpkin slices. Sprinkle salt and drizzle 2 - 3 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil over the pumpkin slices.
  • Bake pumpkin for 20 minutes each side. Check using a fork, if the pumpkin flesh is tender. Baking time may vary, depending upon the size and variety of the pumpkin. So check after the first 20 minutes.
  • If it is roasted well, the flesh would scoop off easily. If not, then pop it back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
    Roasted Pumpkin Pulp
  • Once roasted, scoop out the flesh of the pumpkin. Discard the skin. Grind the roasted pumpkin pulp along with garlic cloves and onion to a smooth puree.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup:

  • Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a saucepan. Add pumpkin puree.
  • Add warm vegetable stock in the same saucepan. As the liquid comes to a boil reduce the heat to medium and let the soup simmer for 10 - 15 minutes more. Taste, add salt, pepper, cream or coconut milk accordingly. Turn off the heat.
  • Serve Roasted Pumpkin Soup warm garnished with cream and chopped parsley.


  • You can roast the pumpkin in a BBQ or over the stovetop as well. 
  • Adding cream or coconut milk is optional. 
  • Do not cook the soup for too long after adding coconut milk.
