Vegan Gluten-Free Kicked up Pumpkin Soup!

Yum yum yum!
Yum yum yum!

Today, I made this fabulous, easy to make Seasonal Kicked up pumpkin soup to nourish me!  A while ago, I received a big fresh pumpkin  & a big yellow courgette from our friends who have an allotment! We were happy receivers! I used dried chili peppers, that I grew myself! 😉 This soup is so smooth, because of my beloved Vitamix & so kicking too, just right!

Recipe: For 2000 ml of silky smooth soup!


550 gr peeled, seeds & mellow stuff removed, cut into cubes fresh pumpkin ( weighted when cut up & peeled )

420 gr yellow courgettes, cleaned, cut up into chunks

1 medium white onion, peeled & cut up

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & cut up

1/2 teaspoon of dulce smoked paprika

2 dried chili peppers ( stems removed & cut up ) / I used dried home-grown red chili peppers de padrón!

a fruity evoo

a few dashes of Maldon sea salt

1 liter hot vegan gluten-free stock

10 grins of black pepper


1. Take a larger cooking pot & heat up on medium-high. When hot, add a few drizzles of that fruity evoo. When sizzling, add cut up onion & garlic. Season with some sea salt & 5 grins of black pepper. Stir often. Add cut up courgette & pumpkin cubes. Add 10 grins of black pepper & cut up dried chili peppers. Stir often. Fry your courgette & pumpkin pieces for a while, like 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce the heat if you need to. Now, pour hot vegan gluten-free stock over it all & stir everything round into the pot. Cook with a lid on for about 8 minutes or until your veggies are cooked through.

2. Laddle your soup into 2 batches into your Vitamix & place the  tamper in it too! Be careful, the soup will be extremely hot!!! Blend until completely smooth. Pour the blended soup into another clean pot & do the same with the rest of the soup. Combine the 2 mixed soups. Taste. The soup was very smooth, nice color & an added kick at the back of your mouth,…That is what you want!

3. Laddle your soup into lovely soup bowls & enjoy just like that or with a baguette smeared with vegan butter on the side! Yum Yum yummy! 🙂 Stay tuned, Subscribe through the photo link below to get my new cool newsletters aka posts! Join 1,800 email Subscribers! It is free! Click onto this link below!

  1. Ooh that looks lovely. I love the combination of sweet, earthy pumpkins with chilli. My mum has promised me one of the giant pumpkins she’s grown, I think some of it might end up in a soup like this.

  2. Hello Sophie,
    The new pumkins are arrived. Your soup looks very tasty and ready to eat.

  3. Oh, I -do- like it hot! 😉 I may not have anything so special as homegrown dried chilies, but I do have a few hot peppers lying around here someplace… It’s about time they go towards a greater calling than wall decoration!

  4. OMG looks amazing! I love everything about it, including the gorgeous pics of red chili peppers 🙂

  5. I love how you’ve dried your own chillies. I’ve never had a pumpkin soup with a bit of heat but I think it would be wonderful especially on a chilly evening xx

  6. Holy YUM! Gorgeous colour in your soup, the top pic I thought was almost a clear soup, so good. 🙂 I am all about the summer dishes now, so no soup for me for awhile. But Ill bookmark for the cooler months. Hope you are well lovely Sophie. xo

  7. It is a fabulous fantastic soup! I made it today! Soooo deliciousness! x

  8. Look at those peppers!!!! Awesome!! Doesn’t it feel great to use homegrown ingredients!? I love the sound of this soup- I think it could cure any winter cold!!
