Velouté de Potimarron et Morteau

March 30, 2021

The creamy soup with sausage pieces.I am French and I really love to cook simple but delicious dishes. This recipe is about Velouté de Potimarron et Morteau. Most this dish would most likely translated as Pumpkin Soup with smoked sausage from Morteau, but in French we do not call it soup, namely velouté because of its special creamy texture.


by the way, I cook, but I take crappy pictures

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4


  • 1 Pumpkin weighing around 2 kg
  • 2 Morteau sausage (you can replace them with other smoked sausages, or even Knacks, but it's not ideal. I didnt try with smoked pork belly, but I guess it would work properly too)
  • 1 Onion or 2 shallot (how to choose ? shallots are sweeter, but they make you cry more)
  • 1 kg Carrot
  • 1-2 tsp Olive oil (you can go for butter instead, but i'm from the south so, olive oil for me)
  • 1-2 tsp Heavy cream
  • Chicken broth (from cubes or homemade. Seriously, you should learn how to make it yourself, its easy and its always useful maybe Ill write a recipe, if there are interested people)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Two morteau sausages.
