Pumpkin soup



  • GEA Štajerska Prekmurje pumpkin seed oil
  • 1.2 kg pumpkin
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled whole
  • 750ml vegetable or chicken broth
  • 250 ml water
  • salt and pepper
  • 125 ml cream


Cut the pumpkin into 3 cm slices. Cut the skin off and scrape seeds out. Cut into chunks.

Place the pumpkin, onion, garlic, broth and water in a pot – liquid won’t cover all the pumpkin. Bring to a boil, uncovered, then reduce heat and let simmer rapidly until pumpkin is tender.

Remove from heat and use a stick blender to blend until smooth.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Ladle soup into bowls, drizzle over a bit of cream and with a few drops of pumpkin seed oil. Serve with crusty bread!

Bon appétit!
