  • 6 Ingredients


Quick and easy, plus works well with veggies that have been in the fridge a while! For added flavour roast the veggies instead of cooking in a saucepan.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Harissa Paste (or a small amount of crushed fresh chilli)
  • 1 Large Onion chopped
  • 750 Grams Sweet Potato chopped
  • 750 Grams Pumpkin chopped (butternut works best)
  • 6 Cups Vegetable Stock


  1. Heat oil in a large pan. Add harissa paste (or chillis), onion, potato and pumpkin. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Pour in the stock, cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Blend until smooth.
  3. Garnish with coriander to serve.


Put a dollop of sour cream in right before serving. You can also use carrot if you haven't got enough pumpkin or sweet potato. Serve with a nice crusty bread.

  • It’s the perfect time of the year for a delicious soup!


  • I love soup and crusty bread. Will use less onion though.


  • Thanks for the recipe. Can’t wait to try it.


  • Perfect soup for a cold Winter’s night! Thanks.


  • I made this soup last week and loved it. It’s delicious.


  • We make a pot of these every sunday! IT is great for sunday lunch and my lunch during the week!


  • what a great winter warmer recipe


  • I’ve never thought to add sweet potato to pumpkin soup – I can’t wait to try it.


  • I am glad this has sweet potato in it, not white or pink ones are they are starchy and not suitable for people with diabetes or insulin resistance. Starchy food converts to sugar, causing a quick energy spurt, then a long time of tiredness and fatigue.


  • I like the combination of ingredients – chilli adds a nice depth.


  • YUM! Soup with bite! Love it! Thanks for sharing!


  • A simple and delicious recipe; thanks!.


  • This looks really good! A nice recipe!


  • you are a super star – thanks for sharing this simple yet incredibly delicious soup


  • I was just reading about the benefits of orange foods – this is perfect timing for me!
