Pumpkin and red onion soup with thyme and rosemary flowers


1 red onion
2 tbsp olive oil
2 kg pumpkin flesh
1 celery stick with leaves
2 l vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to taste
A few sprigs of thyme
A few rosemary flowers


A nice soup for the weekend, simple, just chop a red onion and sauté with olive oil. Add cut and peeled pumpkin, a celery stalk with leaves and some vegetable stock. When the vegetables are cooked blend the soup, adjust with salt and pepper and then decorate with fresh thyme and rosemary flowers (these can be eaten and will give the soup a lovely rosemary flavor without any of the woody leaves!).

Happy Weekend to all!

With this recipe I take part in the  The Soup Kitchen Monthly Blogger Event, this month's theme is Olympic Soup.

  1. la zucca è il mio ingrediente preferito nelle zuppe!! bacio

  2. Che spettacolo... questo tuffo nel giallo mi ha messo, oltre che un grande appetito, un ottimo umore.

    Buon fine settimana :)

  3. You're right, Alessandra - the perfect soup for the weekend. Lovely combination of flavours. Have a lovely weekend.

  4. anche se abbiamo stagioni diverse in questo momento, ho le tue stesse verdure,mi era rimasta una zucca dell'anno passato,enorme ed era buona,così la sto utilizzando, le cipolle pure il timo fresco ce l'ho sul balcone, faccio la zuppa....bacio

  5. bellissima colore e' anche "estivo" anche se lì da te non e' estate...qui ci sono ancora le zucche ...chissà se gustata fredda e' altrettanto confortevole...

    1. Perche' no, anche fredda o tiepida va bene.

  6. Such amazing colour..squash is one of my favourite! Your images always make me SMILE...hope all is well. xoxoxo

  7. Pumpkin soup always looks so beautiful. Of course, I'm partial to pumpkin. I don't think I've ever seen it look so creamy. How did you do that? Gorgeous!

  8. la fortuna di poterci mettere le cipolle di Tropea in questa zuppa non ha prezzo....ottima combinazione Alessandra complimenti.

  9. Hai ragione, peccato che io abbia solo normali cipolle rosse...

  10. Sounds delicious and healthy too.

  13. Alessandra, thanks for submitting your lovely recipe to The Soup Kitchen Event. The roundup will be published after 20th August.

  14. Hi Alessandra, this looks really healthy and delectable. Unfortunately, in my neck of the woods, pumpkins are scarce. There is squash in abundance, though. Can I use that instead?

  15. Ohhh this looks lovely! And your pictures are just so beautifully charming! I love the bowl :)

  16. How tasty! I've never used (or seen) the flowers for thyme or rosemary, but love how this turned out. I'm featuring this post in today's Food Fetish Friday (with a link-back and attribution). I hope you have no objections and I love the inspiration I get from your food…
