Roasted Pumpkin Soup Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Cut pumpkin in half, remove seeds and place cut side down on a baking sheet, lightly greased.
  • Place in oven and roast until skin is golden brown and pumpkin is tender. (50-60 minutes)
  • When cool, scoop pumpkin out of shell and set aside in a bowl.
  • In a soup pot or medium saucepan, heat two tablespoons olive oil. Skip the above steps if using canned pumpkin purée.
  • Add cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and ginger, stirring constantly for one minute.
  • Add onions, carrots, celery, fresh ginger and garlic to the pan and saute, stirring occasionally until lightly carmelized. (3-4 minutes)
  • Add the chicken stock, apple cider and reserved pumpkin (or pumpkin purée) to the pan.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer and cook 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender.
  • Remove soup from heat and process with an immersion blender or put in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the cream to the soup and stir to combine.
Note: Fill blender no more than 1/2 full with soup. Allow soup to cool and least 5 minutes before blending. Leave one corner of lid open on blender to vent so that soup doesn't explode out.
