Pumpkin Mushroom Soup

Posted by trktos on 22-August-2008

This is one of Evin’s least favorites, I quite like it and it’s very easy to make!


  • 3-4 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp curry, 1 tsp turmeric
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 vegetable broth cube
  • 1 tbsp chick’n powder or chick’n bouillon
  • 1 15 ounce can pumpkin
  • 1+ cup(s) favorite pasta sauce (optional)


  1. Sauté onions, garlic, mushrooms, carrots and celery in oil until semi-tender.
  2. Add flour, curry and turmeric, cooking for a few minutes. (Be sure to not to let flour stick to pot bottom – it *will* burn later.)
  3. Add water, pumpkin, pasta sauce (if using), vegetable cube and boullon. Add sauteed veggies, bring to a boil, simmer about 20 minutes.
  4. Blend with hand blender until soup reaches desired consistency/texture.


  • Can use 2 tsp curry and omit turmeric. I usually use more veggies – extra carrot and celery – when using pasta sauce.
  • Good with fried tempeh and crackers.
