  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 whole persimmons (seeds removed and chopped)
  • 1 whole habanero pepper (deseeded)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp dried garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • Salt as per taste


  • In a saucepan combine all the ingredients and let it boil for 5-7 minutes or until persimmons are soft and mushy.
  • Pour the soup in a blender and blend it smooth. Top it with almond crackers or pair it with a side bread.
  • Enjoy immediately.


  • I used oil free homemade vegetable broth for this recipe. 
  • This soup tastes best when served immediately. However, refrigerate the leftovers for 3-4 days.
  • For instant pot option - combine all the ingredients in the instant pot. Close the lid and seal the valve. Turn it on in the soup mode or at manual high for 10 minutes. Once done, release the pressure and open the lid. Blend it with immersion blender and adjust the seasoning.
