This is a very thick pumpkin soup that is so easy, yet always gets me rave reviews.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roughly chop the pumpkin - most pumpkins you can leave the skin on because the crock pot cooks over such a long period - and place in the crock pot.
  2. Chop potatoes up into cubes, dice onions, place in crock pot.
  3. Put remaining ingredients in crock pot.
  4. If you don't want very thick pumpkin soup, add some water (careful - crock pots don't lose much water).
  5. Turn crock pot to auto - I usually either put it on before I go to bed for the next morning, or when I get up in the morning for that evening's meal.
  6. Pumpkin and potatoes should be very soft when ready for the next step.
  7. Using either a blender or a hand held barmixer, blend until very smooth.
  8. Serve with crusty bread, topped with grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
  9. This soup freezes very well, and lasts a decent length of time in the fridge. I do find that it will need some water added if you freeze or refrigerate it.
  10. For Vegetarian use only the Vegetable broth.

Very thick and has lots of possibilities for use either as is or with more water added or as a base for other ingredients to be added in to make a vegetable soup or even add in some chopped bacon or ham. It was a little sweet for some of my family but I enjoyed it. I did add more water to thin down and I will also try it with adding milk as a thinner. So very easy to make and I have added it to my 'keepers' file :)

This did not have any flavor and was too thick! I had to add chicken broth, and it still tasted bad. Im disappointed because the pumpkin was very hard to skin/cut - wasted time!

This was alright. It was very simple to prepare and I love getting to use my crock pot. However, it was a little bland as is and I would not suggest leaving any skin on. I decided to leave some of the skin on to speed up the time spent chopping the pumpkin and I didn't like the way it affected the texture. Other than that this is a pretty good recipe.
