Pumpkin Potato soup

Simple, yet delicious recipe

pumpkin potato soupI moved out of my parents’ house when I was 18 and until then never had to cook a meal. Since I didn’t want that to happen to my son, I bought him a children’s cookbook when he was 7. Can’t start too soon I guessed.

He took his cookbook with him when he moved out of the house, but both him and me still have recipes we enjoy.

This Pumpkin Potato soup is one of them. Real easy to make and both preparations and cooking won’t take too much time.

Ingredients and preparation

  • 1 big pumpkin
  • 4 potatoes
  • 50 g fresh cream
  • pepper
  • parsley
  • chervil
  • dragon

sweet potatoes
You can either use sweet potatoes or ordinary ones

  1. Peel the pumpkin, remove the threads and seeds and cut the pulp into pieces.
  2. Peel the potatoes, wash them and cut them into cubes.
  3. Put everything in a pan of water and boil for 20 minutes.
  4. Mash the vegetables and pour the soup into a tureen.
  5. Season it with the chopped herbs.
  6. Add some cream, just before serving.


It’s not necessary to add salt to your food, unless you live in a very hot country. Most food contains natural sodium.
In my opinion food tastes better when there is no extra salt added.


We haven’t eaten red meat in 35 years and nowadays my husband is a 100% vegetarian and I occasionally eat some chicken or white fish. We have never forced our son to be a vegetarian as well.
He now lives in a country (Spain) that has a meat culture, but he still often chooses a meatless meal.

Are you a vegetarian? How do you feel when your child eats meat?
