Pumpkin Soup with Coconut Milk and Carrots | Vegan

Pumkin soup topped with chili flakes, parsley, pumpkin seeds and pepper.

I absolutely love pumpkin soup in the colder months. This delicious and tasty roasted pumpkin soup recipe is full of flavors and perfect for the colder weather. It is cozy, hearty and healthy for you too. And let’s be honest here – who doesn’t love a warming soup in fall?

This soup is not only super easy to make but it is also made out of wholesome ingredients. It is super creamy and just tastes like absolute heaven to me.

Ingredients you will need for this vegan pumpkin soup

  • Pumpkin: For this recipe, it is best to use a medium-sized pumpkin. I used Hokkaido, but squash would also work great in here!
  • Carrots: I love the combination of carrots and pumpkin. It literally tastes sooooo good!
  • Coconut cream: Great alternative to heavy cream if you want to keep things plant-based. It provides the soup with so much flavor as well.
  • White onions & garlic: For flavor!
  • Veggie broth: Adds a ton of flavor as well.
  • Spices: I added in just a little bit of salt, pepper, ginger and cayenne pepper!

How to make pumpkin soup from scratch

This pumpkin soup is so simple but still so tasty. And honestly, there is not much preparation to do to make it. I actually roasted all the veggies in the oven for about 25 minutes. After they have finished baking, I blended them up in a food processor along with some coconut cream, veggie broth and spices. Then all there is left to do, is heating it in a big pot, if you feel like it is too cold. But other than that, that’s really all you have to do. Amazing right?

How to store leftovers

If you have leftovers you can easily store them and enjoy them later on. Here are ways how to store your homemade pumpkin soup correctly!

  • Refrigerate: Leftovers will keep in the fridge up to 5 days.
  • Freeze: Alternatively, you can also keep them in your freezer up to 3 months. Store them in your favorite container and defrost them whenever you feel like soup.
  • Reheat: Simply reheat the soup on your stove the next day.

Serving suggestions

There are multiple ways of how to serve your vegan pumpkin soup. Here are some suggestions for you!

  • Toasted bread: I absolutely love toasted bread and think it tastes delicious. Paired with some vegan butter, the soup does taste even better in my opinion.
  • Toppings: Add on some toppings like parsley, chili flakes or pumpkin seeds.
  • Grains: Serve it with rice, quinoa, bulgar or any other grain of your personal preference.

Creamy Mushroom Ramen

Let’s be honest – A delicious bowl of Ramen is pure comfort food. If you love flavorful Japanese Ramen, this Creamy Mushroom Recipe is totally for you! This noodle soup is ready in just about 30 minutes. It is creamy, tasty and good for you too!

How to make homemade ramen?

But let’s start with the basics! There are three main components to a good and delicious Ramen Soup:

  • Broth
  • Noodles
  • Toppings

Starting with the broth for this recipe the key ingredient here is definitely tahini! It creates a rich and hearty flavor in addition to the vegetable broth. But also the soy sauce, the rice vinegar and the shiitake mushrooms help to balance the flavor of the broth very well and are major ingredients that should not be left out!

Regarding the noodles, I used white flour ramen noodles for this recipe in order to keep it fully plant-based. However, yellow egg noodles would be a delicious option as well and do really work well in here too. Also, I personally found it is best to cook the noodles directly in the broth in order to give the soup even more flavor.

If you cooked your broth and noodles it is time to choose your toppings. I decided to keep it simple and topped my Creamy Mushroom Ramen with green onions and pak choi. However feel free to choose your toppings according to your desires! For example nori, bamboo shoots (menma), beansprouts, parsley or even additional spinach would be super delicious in here too. So load up your Creamy Mushroom Ramen with whatever combination of these delicious options you prefer.
