Roasted Pumpkin Apple Soup – Naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and ready to eat in just under 1 hour! 

A super creamy, healthy, and delicious Roasted Pumpkin Apple Soup. This quick and easy recipe is naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.

This flavorful, comforting soup is ideal for those chilly fall evenings when you want something simple and healthy.

Even without added cream, it has a creamy, velvety texture and the right balance of savory, sweet, and spicy.

The recipe couldn’t be easier to follow and you only need a few ingredients. Spread the pumpkin, apple, onion and garlic out onto a pan, sprinkle with salt, drizzle with little oil, and bake for about 40 minutes. Then, place everything in a food processor, add the vegetable stock, and puree until it’s silky-smooth. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls, and top it with pomegranate arils, crunchy pumpkin seeds, chopped parsley, and a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper.

Roasting the pumpkin is the only part that takes a bit of time, but don’t skip this step as it gives the soup a greater depth of flavor and brings out the sweetness of the pumpkin. Once this is done, it takes less than 10 minutes to finish it up.

How to blend hot liquids safely:

1. Fill the blender only halfway.

2. Remove the center piece of the lid to allow the steam to escape.

3. Cover the blender lid with a clean kitchen towel and keep most of the hole covered.

This soup has a rich consistency, but, if it is too thick for you, feel free to add more vegetable stock to thin it out.

I love using tart apples, such as Granny Smith, to balance the sweet flavors.

Roasted pumpkin apple soup makes a delicious light lunch or dinner, and would be perfect served alongside some crusty bread or a hearty salad.

It can be made in advance and reheated when needed. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.

  1. How much is one serving?

    • Hi Katarina! Serves 2 as a main (1 1/2 cup each serving ) or 3 as a side (1 cup each serving). Nutrition facts are for 1 cup of soup.
      I hope this helps 🙂

  2. Had never made pumpkin soup. This recipe is easy and flavorful. I added s little honey to balance the flavors out. Serve with a small dollop of honey Greek yogurt for topping if desired

  3. What a lovely dish!

    I minced up a few discs of fresh ginger and added it when I threw everything in the blender. Since I didn’t have any pomegranate prepped and ready and because I was feeling moderately lazy, I topped w/ pepitas, dried cranberries, and sliced avocado.

    Probably now my favorite ‘tastes like fall’ soup.

  4. This was amazing soup. The tartness of the apple  with the addition of the pomegranate seeds, really gave a nice freshness to the soup.  Just wonderful.

  5. STEP 5: “Use a spoon to carefully scoop out the flesh of the pumpkin (discarding the skin) and transfer to a high-speed blender along with the apple, onion, garlic (remove the skins), cayenne, vegetable stock.”

    It’s not fair to give my recipe a 2-star rating because you don’t read the instructions!

  6. Soup was amazing!!

    Any tips on cooling it down if I accidentally put too much cayenne??
