A quick an easy Pumpkin Soup recipe that can be made in the microwave.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 400-500g Pumpkin
  • 2 cubes Chicken Stock
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • Cream
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Chop up the pumpkin and place in a microwave safe container with the stock cubes and water.
  2. Place the container in the microwave and cook on High for 15-20 minutes (depending on your microwave).
  3. Once cooked add salt and pepper to taste and mash with a potato masher or blend with a stick mixer until nice and smooth.
  4. Place in a bowl and stir through a little cream until your desired consistency is achieved. (I prefer to add the cream when serving individually for the pumpkin without the cream can be frozen.)


A handful of mixed herbs such as chives and parsley can be added to the pumpkin when cooking for a little extra flavour or a sprinkling of dried herbs such as mixed or Italian herbs. If you would like to make a larger batch, the leftovers can be frozen for another meal as long as no cream has been added.
