Slow Cooker Pumpkin Soup Recipe

I’ve been playing around with pumpkin soup recipes for a while now. This is my easiest, and most delicious effort yet.

Ingredients

1 large pumpkin (I like butternut the best)

2 carrots

1 medium sized potato

1 onion

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground ginger

2 tablespoons chicken stock powder

2 cups boiling water

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup cream (optional but delicious!)

Method

1. Trim skin off pumpkin and cut into even sized pieces.slow cooker pumpkin soup recipe

2. Peel potato and cut into even sized pieces.

3. Peel carrot and cut into even sized pieces.

4. Dice onion.

5. Place all vegetables into slow cooker.

6. In a mug, mix stock and spices.

7.  Fill mug with 1 cup of water and mix.

8. Add all liquid to the slow cooker.

9. Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.

10. Blend with an electric mixer and season with salt and pepper to taste.

11. Add cream if desired.

Note: I like my pumpkin soup thick and flavoursome. If you like, you can thin it by adding extra water, milk our cream and half the amount of spices you use.

    That’s dinner tonight then. I’m sick. No sleep. Three kids to take care of. Think I can manage this. But that’s it for the day. Playschool will be my special helper today.

      I really like the combination of these spices…. It’s easy to adjust how much you like according to how flavourism your family likes it.

    I like the idea of making it in the slow cooker i usually do my pumpkin soup on the stove but when i make my soup i always leave the skins on the pumpkin and the potatoes and instead of cream i use low fat evaporated milk…i’ll have to try your recipe now…thanks !

    Can it be in for more than the 4 hours? Like put it on in the morning and it’s ready for dinner? Mmm can’t wait to try it!

    Can you give me an idea of how much the pumpkin would weigh as my husband and I cannot agree on what a medium pumpkin is! I had a pumpkin that I thought was medium but no way would it fit in my slow cooker, my husband said it was large but I’ve seen much larger pumpkins than the one I had so I’m confused! lol
    Ended up making it on the stove but needed heaps more water (I suppose because the slow cooker needs less water) and just didn’t seem right so I’d like to try it again in the slow cooker but want to ensure I use the correct amount of pumpkin.
    Thanks so much,
    :)

      Hi Korina. Sorry I missed this message! Really the size doesn’t matter that much, a bit here or there. I use BIG pumpkins becaue my slow cooker is big and can fit. Just use what fits in. If you do it on the stove, you will need a lot more water. So next time, just use what fits in the slow cooker and maybe use a little less herbs.
