We make this soup with homemade pumpkin puree but this recipe also works with canned puree, which is especially great when you make this dish out of the pumpkin season. The most important point is to keep the balance of the natural flavours and let the pumpkin be the hero of the dish without using an overload of seasoning.


This said, the unusual addition of orange juice will surprise you, but you will soon see how refreshing this is, and it makes the soup lighter. 

What pumpkins are good for soup

The harder varieties such as butternut and Queensland blue will be less watery compared with soft fleshed pumpkins. Choose to make a roast pumpkin puree from it and your soup will be dense and intense in flavour.
