Vitamix Instant Vegan Pumpkin Soup

Soup Recipes Easy Healthy Meals
Method Comments

It is the last day of our official Vitamix Recipe Center celebration, and we end with this fabulous Instant Vegan Pumpkin Soup. I say "instant" because this recipe utilizes canned pumpkin. Now, normally I don't use canned vegetables in any of my recipes. However, this recipe is a healthy lifesaver if you come home and don't have much in your fridge! You can whip up this tasty meal with ingredients in your panty in minutes. 

I also thought it timely that I post this this recipe leading into the holiday season as it is a fantastic way to use those leftover cans of pumpkin. Making soups in your Vitamix is so quick and easy! Check out my Soups Video on the Vitamix website

There are some delicious soup recipes in the Vitamix Recipe Center. Some of my favourites are the: Almond Leek Soup, Black Bean Soup, Mediterranean Soup, and the Cold Nectarine Dessert Soup. Also check out my Cream Of Cauliflower Soup, Cream of Spinach Soup, Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, Roasted Sweet Potato Soup, and Lemon Asparagus Soup

Making soups in your Vitamix is a whole new experience because you get a gorgeous creamy texture. I just don't know what I would do without that phenomenal machine. Presenting the Vitamix Videos really was a dream job for me. I am so proud of my partnership with them, and was so thrilled we could celebrate my involvement in their new website with this month of recipes from their Recipe Center, and the fantastic giveaway of the new Vitamix 750 Professional Series

Don't miss out on your chance to get your hands on this fabulous machine. We have three days left! Entries close at 11.59 EST on September 30th. I will announce the winner on my Facebook page on Monday. I can't wait to announce the lucky winner :)

Thanks Vitamix. WHAT would we do without you?

Tip: What Is A Grain Ball?

I like to supplement a bowl of blended soup with a scoop of cooked grain (day-old is best, as it sticks together). I prefer the protein-rich grains—quinoa, amaranth, and millet (they’re alkaline, too). But use any grains you like—brown rice, buckwheat, or (if you’re not gluten-free) pearl barley. Try cooking grains in vegetable broth or coconut milk, and/or adding some ginger, garlic, sea vegetables, herbs, and spices for an added boost of flavor.

What do you suggest in place of the coconut sugar for this recipe?  Coconut oil, or just omit it?

Sorry for the delay in responding to this Pamela. I was travelling speaking and teaching, and things just got on top of me. I saw on FB that you already made this.
You can use any sweetener you like in this recipe or just leave it out all together. Enjoy :)

Oh, I know what I’m making for dinner tonight! This sounds YUMMY!!

Thanks!

This is SOOO easy and delicious! Enjoy :)

WOW! This is fantastic!

Great recipe! Thanks!

Can I just use any blender for this? I have the Ninja! I can’t afford the vitamix at this time :(.

Thank you! love your recipes!!

reply

Yes, you can use any blender for this recipe. The consistency will vary according to the power of the machine. Most blenders won’t cook it either. Just blend and then heat on the stove top. Enjoy :)
Thanks for your lovely comment too. I really appreciate it.

it was a little bitter to me…. so then I added a bit more sugar and then too sweet…. I am trying more water with some more cooked garlic… suggestions? Do LOVE my vitamix

Gail, I would add just a tiny amount of sweetener and a tiny bit more coconut milk. A bit of salt may help a little too.
