Apples add just a hint of sweetness to this velvety pumpkin soup. Try it as a delightful first course for a special meal.

"The taste was a little bitter, but was definitely softened by the hazelnuts and oil. I found the oven temperature in the recipe to be too high. The pumpkin got burned spots on it fairly quickly. Also, the apple takes much less time to...

This did NOT taste good. I served it as a first course for Thanksgiving and the nicest thing anyone could say was that it reminded them of baby food!!! I won't waste my time again

How can you give something 4 stars if it did not taste good?


I used fuji apples rather than tart apples. It was good and not as tart. I made a second batch using a pumpkin left over from Halloween...not a "pie pumpkin." NO WHERE near as good. Tasted more like some kinds of squash/vegetable soup. Perhaps would have been appetizing had I not been anticipating the smoothness and sweetness of pumpkin soup.

Cutting the pumpkin into large chunks and microwaving till slightly tender made peeling and chopping MUCH easier. I cut large chunks and microwaved each for @4 minutes. Cut each chunk into strips then into chunks then cut peels off each chunk as putting them into bowl. Time-consuming, but not near as tedious.


In response to "taking forever to peel": There are pumpkins one does not need to peel. Here in Germany, where they grow many different eating varieties of pumpkin (Kurbis), a popular type is the Hokkaido. You just dig out the seeds, square it, saute it a bit then follow the rest of your favorite recipe. The shell is totally eatable and adds to the color of the soup. I hope to be able to find this pumpkin upon my return to the States.


I just finished making this soup, and it's absolutely delicious. However, it took me forever to peel the pumpkin. There must be an easier way to do this.


This soup is delicious! I added some onion to the pumpkin and apple roast. Some yogurt added to the bowl added a little kick. Easy and delicious.
