Homemade Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Warm up with a delicious bowl of pumpkin soup. This recipe was created by Marlene Adelmann, founder of the Herbal Academy of New England. Healthy, vegetarian...

This weekend the students and staff cozied up at the Herbal Cottage with tea and soup as we talked through the nervous system, incense, flower essence and so much more. All enjoyed the soup so much that we thought we'd share Marlene's very own Pumpkin Soup Recipe with you here, a delicious concoction that tastes pleasant on the tongue and warms the soul. Do enjoy!

1 large onion, chopped

6 Cloves fresh garlic, chopped

6-8 Carrots peeled and cut into small pieces

4 Potatoes washed, peeled and cut into small pieces

2 Tbsp. Butter

1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper





8-10 Cups water

1 small pumpkin roasted


Wash the outside of a small pumpkin (3-4 lbs) cut in half and scoop out seeds.  Place pumpkin halves face down on an oiled baking dish with sides. Bake in a 375 oven for aprox. 50 minutes.

Pumpkin is done when a knife slides easily into the baked pumpkin.

To prepare soup saute onions and garlic in a large stock pot over med-high heat, saute until golden. Add a Tbsp. of high heat oil such as coconut oil if mixture is too dry.  Onions normally have enough natural juice to saute without added fats.  Add carrots and potatoes with butter and cover.  Lift the cover often to stir and to keep the mixture from burning or sticking.

Ideally the vegetables should brown slightly for more robust flavor. When vegetables are still crisp but slightly cooked and browned, add 10-12 cups of water along with the pumpkin puree.

Season to taste with salt, pepper, cayenne, sage and rosemary.

Garnish with a dab of sour cream or sprinkle with pumpkins seeds.  Add beans when serving for added nutrition.

Serves 10-12
