3. Ingredients for Vegan Pumpkin Soup

It’s easier than you think! You prepare this soup with vegetable broth and plant-based cream .

Soy cream is an alternative to cow’s milk cream .

In the vegetable section, you can grab butternut squash, nutmeg squash , or Hokkaido squash.

Varieties with a light skin are better because the soup gets a great color.

That answers the same question about peeling . I cook Hokkaido pumpkin in the soup with the skin on, I prefer to peel other varieties.

You want it 100% vegan ? Use olive oil instead of butter !

  3. Peel: thinly cut the pumpkin skin or cut into small pieces with the skin.
  4. Dressing: Put the pumpkin pieces in a pot with chopped onions and cover with water.
  5. Seasoning: Season with a little vegetable broth powder, plus salt, pepper, nutmeg and chili.
  6. Bring to the boil: Bring the soup mixture to a slow boil without a lid.

The cream soup has a stronger pumpkin flavor if you add soy cream .

Coconut milk gives the soup an Asian touch . Then add soy sauce and lime juice .

You can season both soup variants lightly or strongly with turmeric and curry .

The vegetable soup will be creamier if you cook one or two chopped potatoes with it .

The presented pumpkin soup with orange juice tastes slightly sour and the orange flavor goes well with the pumpkin.

The orange juice gives the soup a pleasant depth of taste.
