Mummy's Pumpkin Soup

Delicious home made Pumpkin Soup, Handed down from my mum.
It is far superior to any other Pumpkin Soup I have ever tasted.


  • 1 Large Jap Pumpkin (Diced)

  • 1 Sweet Potato (Diced)

  • 2 Potatoes (Diced)

  • 2 Carrots (Grated)

  • 1 Onion (Diced)

  • 1 tbl Oil

  • 3 tsp Curry Powder

  • 1 Litre Chicken Stock

  • Salt and Pepper

  • 300ml Evaporated Milk


  • 1.

    Saute onion in a large soup pot with oil until it begins to appear translucent.

  • 2.

    Add vegetables and curry powder. Stir and cook for a few minutes.

  • 3.

    Add chicken stock and season generously with salt and pepper.

  • 4.

    Cover and bring to boil, Then Simmer for 2 hours, Stirring regularly scraping the bottom of the pot, to avoid burning.

  • 5.

    Puree with hand blender, then stir in evaporated milk.

  • 6.

    Serve with crusty bread, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of nutmeg.


Replace chicken stock with vegetable stock for a vegetarian option, and if you remove the evaporated milk if becomes vegan friendly.
