Serving: 6
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 4 hrs
Total Time 4 hrs 15 mins


  • 1 medium butternut pumpkin
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 2 carrots
  • 6 small (or 4 medium) potatoes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed (or 2 teaspoons minced garlic)
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 1x 270ml can coconut cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh coriander, finely chopped (optional)


  • 1) Turn slow cooker on HIGH and add onion, garlic and curry paste to bowl, mix well
  • 2) While slow cooker is warming up, peel and chop pumpkin, sweet potato, carrots and potatoes and add to bowl
  • 3) Pour over chicken stock and stir (note - vegetables should NOT be covered by stock as vegetables will cook down. Adding too much stock will result in a thin soup)
  • 4) Cook on high for about 4 hours or until vegetables are well cooked
  • 5) Add coconut cream and blend with a stick mixer
  • 6) Taste and add salt/pepper/more curry paste as needed
  • 7) Serve with fresh chopped coriander (optional)


  • NOTES:
  • - For a thicker soup, only add 750ml of stock
  • - You can also use coconut milk instead of cream, however the tins are usually 400ml so the soup will be thinner
  • - Curry pastes can vary in heat, so if you are unsure how hot yours is, add one tablespoon of paste at the start and taste test before serving. You can always add more at the end to make it as spicy as you like
  • Cooked in a 6L Russell Hobbs slow cooker

  1. Has anyone tried this after also adding lemongrass stalk and/or kaffir lime leaves during the cooking? If ou have tried either orb both please let me know your opinions. Thankyou

  2. This would have to be my favourite pumpkin soup recipe. I love the mild spice from the Thai red curry paste and coconut cream and also the fact it’s not overpowering. Delicious this is a regular for me now and always have stock in my freezer for a quick and healthy yummy lunch.
