Pumpkin & Lentil Soup

I guess there are hundreds of ways how to make a pumpkin soup! This is one of my favorites since it requires only one pot and when it comes to boil you are free (if you have good pot otherwise – stir occasionally). I think this is a super simple & delicious recipe.


Pumpkin & Lentil Soup

One-Pot wonder
Total Time 40 mins
Servings 2


  • 1 kg pumpkin flesh cubbed
  • 2 onions diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2/3 cups lentils
  • 1 liter vegetable broth
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • pinch of thyme optional


  • Sauté the onion and garlic in a large pot with the olive oil over medium heat until the onions are soft and transparent.
  • Add pumpkin and red lentils. Stir to combine and add broth.
  • Place a lid on the pot, turn the heat up and allow it to come to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, turn the heat down and simmer on low for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Using a potato masher (or for smooth texture - hand blender) mash the soup to desired consistency. Taste for seasoning. Serve (with/without sour cream).
