November 27, 2019 greekbrands 0 Comments

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in America and one of the most well-known national days worldwide. Based on that, we would like to share with you a special recipe for a Greek-style dish to accompany you in this day’s festive table.

Pumpkin Soup with Greek Feta Cheese and Thyme Honey (Serves 8-10)


2kg pumpkin

5 tbsp. Greek extra virgin olive oil (4 for the soup and 1 for the garnish)

1 large onion chopped

2 fresh onions finely chopped

2 melted cloves garlic

1 large carrot finely chopped

2 medium sized red peppers

4 tbsp. Greek thyme honey

8-10 cups of vegetable broth

4 tbsp. unsalted butter

500 gr Greek Feta Cheese (400g for the soup & 100g for the garnish)

Also, some mint leaves or wild Greek dried thyme and a pinch of ground nutmeg for the topping


Firstly, Preheat oven to 180 ° C and then cut the pumpkin and remove seeds. Season with salt and pepper and brush with oil. Place pumpkin in a nonstick baking pan and bake for about 1 hour, until tender. Remove from oven, let it cool slightly, remove the flesh and chop it.

Then, in a large skillet, heat olive oil in order to sauté carrots, onions and garlic until they are all soft. Add the chopped pumpkin and some extra salt and pepper. Then pour in the thyme honey and stir for 1-2 minutes before you finally add the broth. Then cook all together for 30 – 35 minutes. Use an immersion blender so as to puree the whole soup until smooth and just before serving whisk in the butter and feta.

To serve: ladle soup into bowls with a mint leave or dried thyme and some nutmeg and then drizzle with olive oil drops in each of them. Last but not least, don’t forget to sprinkle with crumbled feta.

Happy thanksgiving 2019 everyone!

Enjoy! 😊
