Pumpkin Soup Thermomix
Over Halloween I went a bit pumpkin crazy. My first Halloween in the UK since 2007 and I couldn’t stop buying pumpkins.
It was like an obsession.
We went pumpkin picking, and I must have bought about 12 huge pumpkins plus about 20 spaghetti squash and loads of acorn squash too.
I hate it that pumpkins are only in season for a very short time in the UK compared to what the season was like in Portugal.
I had recipe plans for Recipe This, I had favourite recipes I wanted to make for us and then a few weeks later I realised I still had way too much pumpkin.
So, I did some batch freezing of the pumpkin. I part cooked the pumpkin in the Thermomix and the Instant Pot and saved the pumpkin for another day.
It then sat there in the freezer waiting for another day.
Fast forward to Easter, and I found myself grabbing my pumpkin from the freezer and using it in stews, casseroles and soups.
Today, I wanted to share with you my favourite pumpkin soup from the Halloween freezer leftovers and that is pumpkin soup in the Thermomix.
A super easy Thermomix soup recipe and perfect for when you have saved some leftover pumpkin or butternut squash and want to transform it into a delicious creamy soup.
Or you can make ahead our Thermomix pumpkin soup and then freeze it and reheat your soup from frozen at another time of the year.

Is Pumpkin Soup Tasty?
Yes, pumpkin soup is tasty. But only if you season your pumpkin soup well and that you add good stock to your pumpkin soup.
My elderly next door neighbour in Portugal (she has since passed away) introduced me to pumpkin soup.
I think she thought that I didn’t feed my kids veggies and would give me a tour of her garden where she grew her own veggies and even grew pumpkins.
And would give me the ingredients to make her pumpkin soup which I would take to my soup maker and make.
It was always creamy and tasty, but if I had altered the ingredients I doubt it would have been as good.
Why Is My Pumpkin Tasteless?
The BIGGEST REASON why your pumpkin soup is tasteless is because of lack of flavour.
Have you ever heard the term that your soup is like dishwasher water? This is because you have added water instead of quality stock to your thermomix pumpkin soup recipe or because there is too much liquid, and it has diluted the flavour of the pumpkin.
The way around this, is to make sure you use quality stock, don’t add too much liquid and that you season the soup before serving.
What Does Pumpkin Soup Taste Like?
I find that pumpkin soup tastes similar to butternut squash, sweet potato soup and other similar in season veggies.
If you are not a big fan of pumpkin on its own, then you can add in sweet potato and butternut squash or even some leeks.
How Long Does Homemade Pumpkin Soup Last?
I prefer to consume all my leftover pumpkin soup within 2 days, but it will last up to 4 days, if kept in a sealed container in the fridge.
Or if you know you can’t get through your soup within 4 days, I recommend loading into a pyrex container and freezing for later.
How Do You Cook Soup In The Thermomix?
The concept behind soup in the Thermomix and how to cook it, is very simple and I much prefer a Thermomix soup to soup in the soup maker.
You can firstly use the Thermomix to dice any veggies or make them smaller. For example, add garlic cloves and then let the Thermomix slice them up.
Secondly, you can use the Thermomix to sauté your onion, garlic or even to partly roast your pumpkin ahead of making soup.
Thirdly, you can use the Thermo to cook the soup and blend at the same time, giving you a fantastic equal cook on the veggie you are adding. Whilst in comparison a soup maker will cook and then blend.
Then at the end you can add in extras, add cream, and then let the Thermomix do a thorough blend of the ingredients before serving.
To do any of these pumpkin soup steps, you dump ingredients into the Thermomix pot and let it do the hard work for you.

My thoughts on Thermomix Pumpkin Soup:
It’s easy to adapt – You can use this exact method for many, many Thermomix soup recipes and we plan to prove this over the coming days with more Thermomix soup recipes.
Dicing is a game changer – I love loading garlic and onion into the Thermomix and how quickly it chops them for you.
I love the variety – You also have the option to swap the pumpkin for butternut squash or sweet potato or even another winter squash to make the same creamy soup.
But most importantly, would I recommend making pumpkin soup in the Thermomix? Yes, I would. I would highly recommend that every Thermomix user tries making soup as its amazing and such a time saver. Plus, you can also use the Thermomix to reheat your leftover soup too!

What Are The Ingredients For Pumpkin Soup?
Pumpkin – I love that in Australia they call butternut squash, butternut pumpkin. And that they often replace pumpkin with butternut squash. Well, you can do the same with this pumpkin thermomix soup recipe. And you can also use frozen pumpkin too or even partially cooked.
Garlic – I find that pumpkin can be bland on its own and needs extra flavour. That is why I always start my pumpkin soup thermomix recipe with fresh garlic and onion.
Oil – I also recommend a little extra virgin olive oil as its fantastic for sauteing the garlic and the onion and gives extra flavour to the soup.
Stock – Beyond the pumpkin the key ingredient for the best ever pumpkin soup is the stock. This is what gives the great flavour to the soup and stops it from tasting bland. I recommend our instant pot veggie stock.
Seasoning – Then soup is not the same without its seasonings. I recommend salt, pepper, thyme, parsley, basil, and oregano.
Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in this Thermomix pumpkin soup recipe it has just been our TM6 and its wonderful for many types of soups.
Plus, we recommend you head over to our Thermomix recipes category as we will be adding Thermomix recipes as we try new ones for you.
How Do You Make Pumpkin Soup In The Thermomix?
- Sauté. First peel your garlic and onion and dice. Then load into the Thermomix with extra virgin olive oil and sauté and mix at the same time on speed 6.
- Add. Load pumpkin into the Thermomix and carry on sauteing to allow extra flavour to the pumpkin and to make it more like a roast pumpkin soup in the Thermomix.
- Pour. Next pour in your stock and seasonings and cook for 20 minutes on a low speed at 100c.
- Finish. Pulse the pumpkin soup ingredients to make it super creamy thick pumpkin soup and then serve with pumpkin seeds.
And I am sure you can see now how easy it is to make Thermomix roast pumpkin soup and how you can do the same in your kitchen.
What Thermomix Settings Do You Use?
The easiest way to do the pumpkin soup recipe in your Thermomix is to use the manual settings.
The manual setting is perfect for mixing and cooking at the same time. You can be setting the temperature, the time, and the speed all on one screen. Then it will beep when it is done.
For example, when we were sauteing the pumpkin with the garlic and onion we used speed 1.5 for 5 minutes on 100c.
Pumpkin Soup Variations
Pumpkin Soup Without Cream – Its very rare I ever use cream in soups. I find that adding in some potato, making it with root veggies, or just using some Philadelphia Cream Cheese, can be so much better.
Pumpkin Puree Thermomix – You can also use the Thermomix to make pumpkin puree with. Just avoid the likes of garlic and onion and go straight in with a pumpkin and stock cook.
Basic Pumpkin Soup – You can also use this recipe as your basic pumpkin soup, Simply, add in favourite spices, other veggies etc to make it your own.
What To Serve With Pumpkin Soup?
Back to my elderly neighbour in Portugal that taught me so much about pumpkin soup.
She (like all Portuguese people) believes the base of a healthy diet is to start every lunch or dinner with soup.
So, she would serve this pumpkin soup before the mains such as pumpkin soup and then some grilled fish and veggies with potatoes.
Or this pumpkin soup on its own for lunch served with yummy air fryer pull apart bread rolls.
I also get asked what main dish goes well with pumpkin soup and I would always recommend a meal that feels like it fits the season of pumpkin. Such as our air fryer harvest casserole or instant pot turkey breast or slow cooker turkey crown.
