June 10, 2015

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 6 hrs
  • Yields: Approx 4L


1 large peeled, seeded and chopped Jarendale pumpkin (you can also use butternut pumpkin instead)

1 large potato, peeled and chopped

2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped

2 medium onions, peeled and chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups liquid chicken stock


Fresh garlic chives

2 tbsp purchased dried pumpkin seeds

1/2 tsp olive oil

Cream or sour cream


1Combine all ingredients into slow cooker.

2Cover and cook on LOW for 6hrs.

3When finished cooking blend with stick mixer for smooth consistency.

4In a small fry pan on stovetop, heat olive oil and lightly toast pumpkin seeds, stirring/moving as you do so to ensure none burn. It only takes about 3-5minutes to toast to golden.

5Serve pumpkin soup into bowls, swirl with a dollop of cream and scatter with chives and toasted pumpkin seeds.

6Can be increased to 8hr cooking time if needed

Made this the other day. Could only get Kent Pumpkin but still amazing. I gobbled up a bowl as soon as it was ready.
Will try butternut pumpkin next time. A really nice healthy soup. 😁

Made this last night…I actually cut the pumpkin in quarters, deserved and roasted in the oven for 40 mins, allowed to cool slightly then scooped the flesh into the slow cooker, didn’t peel the spuds or carrots and just cut quickly in large chunks…this was delicious
