Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Wondering what to do with those beautiful pumpkins on your front porch? Here's an easy and delicious soup that's perfect for those cool Fall evenings.


 

I used one of my favorite pumpkins - Blue Doll. This greenish-blue pumpkin grows to around 20 pounds in weight. It has a deep orange flesh and is perfect for soups.


Method for roasting pumpkin.

1 pumpkin, seeded & cut into chunks. Place pumpkin in a large roasting pan. Drizzle with avocado oil, salt & pepper. Add 1/4 cup water to bottom of pan. Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees until pumpkin is very soft - about 1 hour. Remove pumpkin from oven, allow to cool slightly. In a bowl, scoop out pumpkin to use for soup.

Ingredients.

  • 2 tbsp. avocado oil

  • 1 tbsp. butter or ghee

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 carrots, peeled & chopped

  • 2 stalks celery, chopped

  • 1 quart vegetable or chicken stock

  • 1 cup water

  • roasted pumpkin

Method.

  1. In a large dutch ovenover medium heat; saute garlic, onion, carrots and celery until soft.

  2. Add roasted pumpkin and broth. Bring soup to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Cover soup and cook for 30-45 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and use an immersion blender to blend soup until smooth. Add salt & pepper.

Add-in Ideas.

  • Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

  • For a creamier soup add coconut milk for non-dairy or heavy cream to taste.

  • Add red curry paste [Thai Kitchen is my favorite!],coconut milk, lime juice, ginger and cilantro for a fabulous Thai version.
