Homemade Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Organic Pumpkin and Heirloom Carrot Soup

 

We got this amazing produce from a Growers and Makers Market last weekend. I am in love with the purple heirloom carrots at the moment.  I set to work immediately to make a delicious soup to harness the goodness and freshness of the produce! 

I was really tempted to add lots of fresh herbs to this soup, but none were required. The flavor of the baked pumpkin and carrots shone through sweet and fresh without needing a boost.

Hints and Tips:

  • If you are running short on time don’t bake the pumpkin, add it to the pot and it will cook as the soup simmers
  • I usually cook most meals in stages (when Cuddles is sleeping). You can cook the pumpkin the day before
  • Like most soups this one is suitable to freeze
