This Honey Roasted Butternut Pumpkin Soup is a breeze to put together. Simply roast the pumpkin in honey and then purée with veggies into a delicious wintery soup. It's perfect for a cool autumn or winter day!
As much as I love the warmer weather, I love it when the days start to get a little cooler, and even better, when it rains. Why? Because it's perfect soup weather. In summer, especially a hot Brisbane summer, it's too hot for soups. So the moment there is a rainy, miserable day, I rejoice and make soup!
The recipe for this Honey Roasted Butternut Pumpkin soup uses lovely butternut pumpkin (otherwise known as butternut squash, to my northern hemisphere readers). Butternut pumpkin is my favourite pumpkin. I love its deliciously nutty sweetness—which is perfectly complimented with the honey when roasted.
After a long summer, do you look forward to the days when it starts to get cooler so you can enjoy soup, like me?

Honey Roasted Butternut Pumpkin Soup
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
- Place the pumpkin in a baking tray and cover with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, nutmeg, honey, salt, and pepper. Toss to ensure the pumpkin is coated evenly and roast in the oven until the pumpkin is softened and cooked through. Set aside.
- In a large stock pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over a medium low heat and add the onion, garlic, and celery. Cook until the onion is softened and golden. Reduce the heat, if necessary, to stop the onion burning.
- Add the pumpkin to the pot along with the stock and rosemary. Stir to combine, and then blend with a stick blender until smooth. Alternately, pour the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Return the pot to the hot plate and add the cream. Stir through and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Serve with crusty bread.
