Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Soup 5 0 5 44

A thick, vegetable packed bowl of goodness you'll definitely want to go back for seconds of! Slow cooked soup at it's best πŸ™‚

  • Prep: 45 mins
  • Cook: 6 hrs
  • 45 mins

    6 hrs

    6 hrs 45 mins


1 butternut pumpkin, peeled and large diced

1 large sweet potato, peeled and large diced

3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

2 onions, chopped

2 large carrots, sliced

2 tsp minced garlic

1 -2 litres of vegetable stock (use 1L for really thick soup, 2L for runnier. Can also be chicken stock if you prefer non vegetarian option)


1Roast pumpkin and sweet potato in 180 degree oven for approx 30mins or until semi cooked to maximise it's flavour in the soup. This step can be skipped and they can be added raw if you prefer a faster prep

2Combine all other ingredients into slow cooker with the pumpkin and sweet potato and cook on high for 3hrs then low for 3hrs, or low for 8hrs.

3Blitz with stick mixer for lovely thick soup.

4You may also choose to blitz only half of the soup if you like to retain some chunks of vegetable through the soup instead πŸ™‚

Made this a few days ago. Didn’t roast veggies, felt it was missing something and added some ground cumin, seasoned well and some chilli flakes. Used 1.5l of stock. It is just gorgeous with a dollop of sour cream when serving. Will definitely make again 😊

This was great. I loved the flavour by roasting the veggies first. I used a packet of chicken noodle soup mix and water instead of chicken stock and it was delicious.

Yum yum yum! Perfect winter warmer on a rainy day. Cooked as per recipe, added 1.5L of stock so it was a nice thick consistency. Also added a dash of nutmeg just before I blitzed it up. Garnished on serving with some diced bacon!

This was delicious, I made it a little thicker to out liking.
It made enough for 4 meals for the two of us.

I make a slight variation of this recipe – I use the same veggies, but add more of them and use less stock (3 cups) so it’s quite thick. I roast all the veggies. I cook on low for 3-4 hours. It’s perfect and delicious every time.

Loved it 😍 was popular with the family

OMG… a great soup with a little curry powder for a ittle flavour and spice.. Thanks πŸ™‚

Made this for the first time last night didn’t roast the veg just put them all in the Slow Cooker. I’m a single Mum so my son & I will be eating it for Lunch for the next week or so. I just followed the recipe this time but next time I’ll add more flavors. I think this will be a Winner & real easy too.

Yum yum! I roasted the pumpkin & sweet potatoes as per the instructions & really added to the flavour & texture. Added curry powder & cream at the end!…. all bowls licked clean! πŸ€ͺ

Very tasty soup – hubby loved it! Might add a little curry powder next time; not that it needs it, just because I kept expecting to taste it as I usually make curried pumpkin soups


May 23, 2021

Made for the first time tonight, I didn’t roast the veggies and used 1.5L of veggie stock. Was very tasty and a good consistency.
Would throw in some bacon next time for extra flavour.

So yummy. Great to have in the fridge/freezer for a cold day, served with cook at home rolls.
Make a small version for 2 in my 1.5l sc. Just use equal amounts of all veg to fill within 2cm of the top . Almost cover with stock. Perfect.

Absolutely beautiful!! I used chicken stock & oven roasted the veg first. Will definitely be making this again soon, especially in winter.


February 23, 2021

Definitely going to be on our regular list! Super yummy!

I added cauliflower too. Only 1 litre of stock to make it nice and thick.

So easy to prep (while the sweet potato and pumpkin roasted I prepped the rest of the veggies)

Added cream when serving.

I cook this soup regularly
It’s easy to make and tastes delicious
It’s a favourite in our home
When cooking ricotta and spinach agnolotti I use this soup as my sauce …. it’s a winner every time

Absolutely divine and so simple to make. Thank you Pauline xx


August 25, 2020

This is amazing!
Decided to make it for lunch as I’m trying to eating more healthy. Put it on high at 7.30am while getting the kids ready for school.
Blitzed it and served with a little bit of sour cream. Yum!

I make a similar version of this I add fresh ginger & a carrot or capsicum & curry powder to the basic recipe.
Love it and variety is the “spice of life”


July 4, 2020

I have made this a few times, adding more or less of each ingredient I have available at the time. I can’t really notice too much difference if I roast first or add them raw. It’s always delicious. You can’t go wrong


July 3, 2020

Such a satisfying dinner. I love this soup.
The first time making I stuck to the recipe and it was delicious.
Second time making, I freestyled a little adding Nutmeg, cinnamon, curry powder and a little ginger powder and finished with cream. Amazing!

Made this tonight, was my first time making any kind of soup and well it was certainly a winner… I did add a little dash of cooking cream before I blitzed it…
I love a good soup and so does my 14yr old, but Hubby and 10yr old have never really been fans but that all changed tonight πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

Absolutely love this. Made it today and added mixed spice and nutmeg. This will definitely be a regular in our house. Just need to figure out how much of the ingredients to use in a 1.5ltr next as there’s only two of us in the house now and makes so much in my larger slow cooker that we’ll be eating it for days lol.

Absolutely incredibly tasting soup 😍 and a great way to get through my homegrown butternut pumpkins πŸ˜‰ I roasted the pumpkin, sweet potato, carrots & onions for approx 1.5hrs first. Then added 4 small potatoes, 150gm diced bacon, 1tsp paprika, 2tsp cumin powder,1tsp nutmeg,1tsp parsley, a good shake of curry powder, 1lt chicken stock and 1lt of vegetable stock. Cooked on high for 5hrs, blended with stickmixer, then added 200mls of thickened cream and mixed through before serving with homemade cheesy garlic rolls. Love, love, love the flavours πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ Thanks for sharing your brilliant recipe with us Paulene Christie, it’s our new favourite!!

My 6 year old boy loves this soup. He cleans his bowl everytime. Though we call it ‘Sunshine Soup’ because he doesn’t like ‘pumpkin soup’ πŸ™„


May 22, 2020

I’ve always been a fan of Pumpkin Soup but never liked pumpkins…hubby has always liked pumpkins and never liked Pumpkin Soup….until I made it with Sweet Potato…hes now converted.
Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Soup for the Win!!

This recipe was awesome! Large family of 7 and we still had left overs.
Fantastic recipe that hides some awesome goodness!

This was really good, will certainly be making again, although I didn’t roast the vegetables as I was a little short of time and had to head back to work was on a split shift, I did add some nutmeg and pepper though, even the kids eat it.


March 29, 2020

I added bacon pieces last time I made this and added a little dollop of cream once dished up. Very flavor some. 🀀πŸ₯£


February 17, 2020

Best Pumpkin Soup ever, nice and thick, I chucked everything in the slow cooker and left all day. Serve with crusty bread rolls


January 15, 2020

This is my favourite winter soup, when I’ve made it I don’t roast, i just chuck it all in, I used 1.5L of stock, came out amazing!!!

Make this on a weekly basis now. Also have extra that we keep frozen!

Hi! I added a Hock to mine! Yummo

Sure could Tracey πŸ™‚

Could you add crispy bacon pieces and croutons when served

Yes just be careful that it’s ok for hot liquids. It’ll be so tender you could probably just use potato masher also – it might not be quite as smooth but it’ll be just as tasty πŸ™‚


July 2, 2019

Can i use a blender to mix……. I don’t have a stick blender πŸ™

Sure you can leave out the white potatoes no worries πŸ™‚


June 29, 2019

can you use only sweet potatoes. Im allergic to all to all other types of potatoes.

Definitely has become a family favourite. One of my teenage sons will not touch any type of pumpkin soup, until I made this one and now he can’t get enough. Occasionally will add a dash of curry powder but mostly stick to the recipe. A brilliant soup. Would highly recommend to anyone


June 1, 2019

Made this yesterday, for my next week’s worth of lunches for myself (my males are horrified at the thought of having a meat-free meal – haha)
I roasted the pumpkin and sweet potato first.

Unfortunately I found the pumpkin soup too bland. Maybe I like spicy, but all was good jazzed it up with keens curry powder 3 teaspoons, nutmeg 1 teaspoon, allspice 1 teaspoon, and coconut cream 2 x small tins. End result with the added ingredients was good.

Carina Rowe

May 22, 2019

Yum!!! I made a few variations… I only used 1 *extremely large sweet potato, half a large jap pumpkin and 2 onions. I did not roast vegetables first, just chucked it all in with 2ltrs of chicken stock, couple big tsps of crushed garlic, 1/4 tsp ginger and salt & pepper…. it was AMAZING and there’s only 2 serves left to freeze because everyone loved it…so I’m making more tomorrow πŸ˜ƒ


May 21, 2019

Truly a delicious recipe. I looked at the ingredients at first and thought, surely a bunch of vegetables aren’t going to produce that much flavour. But I’d seen everyone raving about it and figured I had to give it a go. It was BEAUTIFUL. So tasty, and so healthy. I will definitely be making this one over and over again.

The best pumpkin soup recipe ever!! Cannot recommend this enough! We roasted vegetables first though, including the onion. Beautiful sweet flavour.

Yes πŸ™‚

You could do so before serving if you wanted to I guess πŸ™‚

Samantha Duncan

Just wondering, could you add cream to this?

Lynn Leach

May 16, 2019

Made this last night. Delicious and a huge hit with the family. Used only 1 lt of stock and it was so thick and rich. Yum! (And I am not a big fan of pumpkin)


May 14, 2019

Absolutely loved this recipe, used 1L veggie stock and 500ml chicken stock an it was perfect. Also froze well for lunches. Made with pumpkin not butternut.

Alison Winning

May 14, 2019

I have made plenty of pumpkin soup in my time but this is my favourite. It is full of flavour and so easy to make. I only used half a butternut pumpkin as it was thick enough. Next time a whole pumpkin and extra stock, to make it go further. I just put everything in the slow cooker without roasting the pumpkin.

Sharon Harbort

In the slow cooker now just wondering if it can be frozen Ta

Beautiful soup! The family came back for seconds!


May 5, 2019

And I didn’t roast the pumpkin first.


May 5, 2019

Best pumpkin soup ever my husband just said. And I loved it too even though I’ve never been a fan of pumpkin soup
Just added a bit of nutmeg and only 1 onion
Used a home grown butter nut pumpkin
All the kids loved it too and gave some to my neighbour who thanked me

This is a family favourite in our house, loved by the whole family.

I also add 2 tsp of minced ginger.

Perfect recipe, I’m not the average housewife my husband actually cooks more than me. I used Chicken stock and drained half the liquid before blending and it came out perfectly.


April 29, 2019

I made a huge batch. Used normal pumpkin as it was home grown. I thought I’d have heaps for left overs. Kids polished it off. It was a hit here.


April 29, 2019

Absolutely love this recipe, I didn’t roast just chucked it all in, I used 1.5L of stock, came out amazing!!! The flavour alone from the vegetables really shines. No cream required!!!! Will make again.

Fantastic warm hearty soup. Was very thick after blitzing it all but that’s how we like it anyway. Added some pepper but would love to try it with a spice next time.
