Pumpkin Soup Recipe: Inspire By Michelin Chef Thomas Keller’s Perfect Recipe

Hello friends! Today we’re going to share with you how to make a classic and super delicious French pumpkin soup (soupe à la citrouille), and the recipe is from Michelin star chef Thomas Keller.

No matter how you call it pumpkin soup or squash soup, pumpkin soup is always classic. It’s my family favorite, and it’s something that never gets old. Also, it’s healthy, creamy, and keeps you cozy. You can use various squashes to make this soup, like butternut squash or kabocha squash. This soup is indeed delicious, perfect for a cold day, and it’s also a beautiful dish to serve on a holiday.

We strongly recommend you try this recipe if you love pumpkin soup, once cooked, served with crispy bacon, croutons, or our favor “crème fraîche and nutmeg”. Hope you like this post.

Place cut side down on the baking sheet, bake for 44-45 minutes or until tender. The baking time depends on the size of squash.
  4. Remove the roasted squash from the oven and let cool, then scoop out the flesh and set aside.
  5. Pour the remaining olive oil in a stockpot over medium high heat, add celery, carrots, onions and shallots, fry for 3-5 minutes or until tender.
  6. Add diced squash and smashed garlic, season with salt and black pepper, reduce the heat to medium low to keep the squash and garlic from coloring, stir for 2 minutes.
  7. Add honey and keep stirring for 2 minutes, then pour the broth and bouquet garni, bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until the squash is tender.
  8. Add the roasted squash and simmer gently for about 30 minutes.
