  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Small Onion diced
  • 2 Carrots diced
  • 1 Celery Rib diced
  • 1 Garlic Clove grated or minced
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Ginger grated or minced
  • ½ teaspoon Coriander
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2½-3 pounds Baking Pumpkin seeded, peeled and cut into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 4 cups Vegetable Broth
  • Pumpkin Seeds for garnish optional


  • Seed and peel the pumpkin.
  • Cut the peeled pumpkin into 1-2 inch pieces.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions, carrots and celery, cook gently for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, coriander, salt and pepper to the pot, cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
  • Add the pumpkin and vegetable broth and stir. Raise the heat to high; bring the soup to a boil, lower heat to medium to medium-low and cover. If the soup is boiling too vigorously, lower the heat a bit. Cook the pumpkin soup for about 25 minutes or until the pumpkin and carrots are so tender they break apart easily when gently pressed with a wooden spoon or fork.
  • Remove the pot from the heat. Process the soup with an immersion blender in the pot. If you don’t have an immersion blender, use a blender. Do not fill the blender to the top with hot liquid, process in batches. Return the pumpkin soup to the pot and warm through, if needed.
  • Taste the soup and season with more salt and pepper, if needed.
  • Serve the ginger spiced pumpkin soup and garnish with a few pumpkin seeds, if desired.


Don’t add too much salt to the soup to start. The vegetable broth contains salt already, you can always add more at the end, if needed. Just as a reference, I added a pinch at the end, but salt is always a matter of taste.
