Recipe by Minimax

Here is Minimax's favourite pumpkin soup recipe—a simple and delicious version that can be easily prepared using a Bamix Immersion Blender.


approx. 4-6 people

Cooking time:

approx. 35-40 mins


1 small pumpkin (around 1-1.5 kgs), peeled, seeded, and cubed

1 medium onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

4 cups vegetable or chicken broth

1 cup coconut milk

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional toppings: roasted pumpkin seeds, a drizzle of coconut milk, fresh herbs


  • 01

    Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes.

  • 02

    Add the cubed pumpkin to the pot, along with the ground cumin, ground cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Stir well to coat the pumpkin in the spices and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

  • 03

    Pour in the vegetable or chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender and easily mashed with a fork.

  • 04

    Turn off the heat and let the soup cool slightly. Using a stick blender, carefully blend the soup until smooth and creamy. 

  • 05

    Place the pot back on the stove over low heat and stir in the coconut milk. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the soup is heated through.

  • 06

    Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. If the soup is too thick, you can add a little more broth or coconut milk to achieve the desired consistency.

  • 07

    Ladle the pumpkin soup into bowls and garnish with your preferred toppings, such as roasted pumpkin seeds, a drizzle of coconut milk, or fresh herbs.

  • 08

    Serve hot and enjoy!

Q&A With Sali Our Bamix Expert

Don’t just take our word for it! Below, we hear from Launceston store manager Sali Thomas and resident Bamix expert on why she would “never switch to anything else” and shares her tips and tricks to make the most out of the ultimate kitchen tool.

How do customers know which Bamix model is right for them?

It depends what you want to use it for and on the frequency of use. If it’s just for blending soups, then the Classic model will do the job just fine but if you wish to complete lots of tasks like the ones I have spoken about, then I’d recommend the Mono or Deluxe models as they come with a variety of blades and attachments that allow you to use the stick blender to its full potential.

What are the top 5 tasks that you use your Bamix for?

• I blend ALL of my soups with my Bamix – but make sure you do this in a stainless-steel rather than a non-stick pot to avoid damaging the coating.

• It’s perfect for whipping up a smoothie – it blends and aerates the ingredients beautifully for a delicious texture.

• I easily and quickly whip fluffy, light cream in a jug for my homemade scones and cakes.

• I even use it to break down the mince in my pan for my spaghetti bolognaise to have a more even consistency if it’s a little lumpy.

• I would also highly recommend the Wet and Dry Mill – it’s fantastic for whipping up a dip without all the extra nasties or making your own breadcrumbs.

What’s the most common mistake made with a Bamix?

A lot of customers don’t realise there an assortment of blades available for different tasks so your Bamix can be used for many, many kinds of food preparation. And if you use the right blade for the task, you’ll get the best results!

How does Bamix make a difference in your kitchen compared with other stick blenders?

I have only ever owned a Bamix but I would never switch to anything else! I love the comfortable wide grip and how easy it is to manoeuvre, the assortment of blades and the variety of tasks they achieve and how easy they are to change. Considering how powerful it is, it runs so quietly and has never broken down or caused an issue.

What’s the most unexpected thing you can do with your Bamix?

Not many people know this, but you can whip up your cappuccino milk for a long lasting, light-as-a-feather froth, worthy of your favourite cafe!
