Creamy Pumpkin and Bacon Soup

I love pumpkin soup, it’s easy to make, tastes great and it’s something I crave for lunch on a cool winters day. The standard pumpkin soup is yummy, but here is a recipe for the deluxe edition – after all, everything is better with bacon!


Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 30 minutes

Serves: 3-4



  • 1 kg jap or butternut pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and chopped coarsely
  • 1 large brown onion, diced
  • 100 g bacon, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 litre stock
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 1/3 cup thickened cream


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and bacon and fry for 5 minutes until the onion has softened.
  2. Add the garlic and fry for another minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the pumpkin and stock, simmer for 20 minutes until the pumpkin has softened.
  4. Using a stick blender, blend the soup until it is smooth. Add the cream and mix until combined.
  5. Serve hot
