Dice the bacon strips into small pieces.

Chop the onion and celery into small cubes.

Cut the skin from the pumpkin using a sharp knife and cut the pumpkin flesh into small cubes.

In a pan or soup pot, fry the onion, garlic, and bacon for about 5 minutes until the onion and bacon are cooked.

Add the pumpkin cubes and stir frequently to avoid sticking to the pan.

Once the pumpkin starts to soften and brown, add the hot water so that it covers the pumpkin.

Add the diced celery and continue cooking for 10 more minutes.

When the pumpkin is completely soft, blend the soup with a hand blender.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Ladle soup into bowls and swirl the sour cream into each bowl to finish. Serve hot!

Cooking Tips

If you want to enhance the pumpkin flavor, chop the pumpkin in half and roast it on a baking tray in a preheated oven at 350F for 1 hour.


Reserve the pumpkin seeds from the pumpkin and roast them in the oven for 30 minutes at 350F.


If the consistency of the soup is too thick, add more water or broth to make it thinner.
