Super Easy Roast Pumpkin Soup + Soup Freezing Tips

This is the most easiest pumpkin soup I have ever made.  Also helps that it is really delicious too!  If you haven’t made your own pumpkin soup before I really recommend you try this one! I have included regular and thermomix recipe below.

I made a double batch so I could place left overs in the freezer.  I have shared steps below on how I freeze soups to use up minimal space in the freezer.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Firstly, drizzle some oil and sprinkle salt over the pumpkins and onion.  Roast in oven. Scoop pumpkin flesh and squeeze onion from skin, add it to blender with stock and puree. Add pumpkin mixture and remaining ingredients into saucepan, mix and heat through. I cut the top off the onion (shown in picture) without thinking, you don’t need to cut top off.

That’s how easy this recipe is, no hard work at all!!  Serve with crusty bread.
