Pumpkin Soup, New Zealand Recipe.

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

This New Zealand recipe came from my sister Tracey, it sounded at first like too much work with two pots but when I tried it out it was so yummy that it was well worth it and it's become a family favourite for whenever pumpkins are cheap enough to indulge in here in The Netherlands since pumpkin isn't really such a "regular" veggie here. If we travel and I find pumpkin, this is the recipe I indulge in !

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pumpkin and onion in 60 grams (2oz) butter for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Add water and cook gently until pumpkin is very tender.

  5. Season with salt, pepper& nutmeg.
  6. Simmer 20 minutes.
  7. If desired take out a little soup, blend with egg yolk and stir back into big soup mixture just before serving.

This was a really nice, easy and simple soup to make. What I liked was the fact that the ingredients were ones most people have in their cupboards or fridge :)... I added a few tsps of sugar and a little bit of cream just to make it a bit more sweeter and creamier!
