My obsession with pumpkin started in March when D and I were renting an apartment in Penang, Malaysia for over a month.

Pumpkin was never one of the vegetables I really liked so I never once indulged in a creamy pumpkin soup recipe. All that had to change.

You see pumpkins were ridiculously cheap in Malaysia – I’m talking $1 for an entire large pumpkin. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to give this veggie another chance.

And now I’m hooked. I was seriously missing out all these years.

Pumpkin is delicious and especially so when pureed and served in a large soup bowl (or when made into a pumpkin chili).


Really though, pumpkin soup is so creamy and comforting. I was happily slurping up bowls even though it was about 100 degrees outside every single day. Even that didn’t stop me.  Optimized-Vegan Quinoa Black Bean Pumpkin Soup

And when I wasn’t slurping away on this creamy pumpkin soup – I was feasting on this un-pureed vegan quinoa black bean pumpkin soup (another favorite).

And, as long as you cut the pumpkin into smallish cubes it cooks fairly fast. Just a few other few ingredients and you’ll be slurping up this vegan creamy pumpkin soup recipe in 30 minutes.

Rosemary and pumpkin are made to be together so don’t leave that out.

And coconut milk gives the soup an even creamier richer texture while still keeping it vegan.

Another winning soup recipe to add to my collection. Ready in 30 mins or less

I love how quickly this soup cooks and for those days when you simply do not have the time to stand over the stove for hours, a 30 minute recipe is exactly what you need.

      Thanks! Recently I’ve been adding coconut milk to a lot of recipe in place of heavy cream to still give the recipe a bit of a creamy taste but allow it to be dairy free or vegan. I love it : )

    This looks great. I make a similar soup with squash and carrots, but now I’m thinking I will have to give this one a try. Yummy!!

    I love this soup recipe and that it is vegan, which I am! I love how simple it is as well. I have never had pumpkin soup before, but am intrigued. It looks so easy and delish!

    • Vicky says

      So glad you have found a new vegan recipe to test out from my site! Hope you enjoy it : ) I never used to love pumpkin but now that it has grown on me I really love this soup.

    • Vicky says

      I think using canned pumpkin would work and I think 2 cans should work! Just make sure to add the broth slowly so that if it’s not enough canned pumpkin just add less broth.

      A small-medium sized pumpkin. Next time I make the soup I will make sure to measure in cups. I apologize for the confusion!
