Thermomix Weight Watchers Pumpkin Soup

Thermomix Weight Watchers Pumpkin Soup

Serves 3 generously

I eat this soup when I’m back on the Weight Watchers train, and I eat it even when I’m not, because it’s that easy and that delicious. In fact, it’s one of my favourite and healthiest soup recipes of all time. Big call, I know!

I was  pretty excited to be able to adapt the recipe to make it Thermomix-friendly. Now I can make it in minutes with minimum mess! Best of all, if you’re weight watching, it’s only 1 ProPoint! If you don’t have a Thermomix, don’t worry, it’s simple to make on the stove too, here’s how

Oh and best of all, if you’re counting Smart Points, this soup is just two!


1 onion, peeled and quartered

1 tablespoon olive oil

550g pumpkin, peeled and roughly cubed (if using soft skin pumpkin, there is no need to peel)

2 carrots, washed and roughly chopped

500g chicken stock (or water with 1 tablespoon Thermomix Vegetable Stock Concentrate)
