Pumpkin Soup Recipe


This is an oldie but a goodie. As far as soups go this is very simple to make. Normally I would have included potato in here, but the Dukanified version doesn’t allow for it….still tastes great!

Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Suitable for Cruise Phase (PV)

1 Butternut Pumpkin

2 Onions

700ml Water

3tsp Chicken Stock Powder

Freshly Cracked Black Pepper

Natural Yoghurt (optional)

1. Roughly chop the Onions and Pumpkin.

2. Add to a large saucepan, the Onions, Pumpkin, Water and Chicken Stock Powder. (The water may not cover the Pumpkin, that is ok)

3. Simmer until Pumpkin and Onion are very soft. The Pumpkin will begin to fall apart.

5. Take the soup off the heat. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.

6. Using a barmix, puree soup until it is all a smooth consistency.

7. Add freshly cracked Black Pepper.

8. Serve with a dollop of Natural Yoghurt (optional)

  • My mum likes to add some teaspoons of curry powder to her pumpkin soup for a bit of spice.

  1. This is a silly question, but is that the same as a butternut squash? I am guessing if it isn’t that squash would work as well.

    I am into Cruise phase tomoro! I really cannot wait! I am going to make the Mircle Soup tomoro and cannot wait for some fibre. If you know what I mean!!

    You are doing really well – congrats! The 90s are going to be well behind you in no time at all!


    • Hi Mary, it’s definitely the same thing as butternut squash šŸ™‚ We just call it a pumpkin.
      Good luck on the cruise phase, you will love it. I might have a go at the miracle soup too!

  2. Hi there, lovely recipe, thanks. I am on day 5 of my cruise phase and have lost 3lbs so far – just started really, but really happy with it ! I wanted to ask if you peel the pumpkin or not ? Have a great day, sue
