Roasted Pumpkin Sage Soup

Pumpkin season is in full swing, and this pumpkin soup is the perfect first course for any meal. Use a hollowed out pumpkin as a bowl for a beautiful presentation.

The aroma of roasted pumpkins and sage smells like everything I love about Thanksgiving – warmth, comfort, family and friends.

If you can’t find sugar or pumpkin pie pumpkins, acorn squash or butternut would work fine it it’s place. This soup can be made ahead and reheated when ready to serve.

Ingredients

2 medium (6 lbs total) sugar pumpkins or pumpkin pie pumpkins

1 tbsp butter (olive oil for dairy-free)

3/4 cup shallots, diced

3 cloves garlic, chopped

4 cups fat free, low sodium chicken broth (vegetarians can use vegetable stock)

1 tbsp fresh sage, plus more for garnish

salt and fresh pepper to taste

reduced fat sour cream for garnish, (optional)

 

Instructions

Heat the oven to 400°F. Using a heavy, sharp knife, cut the pumpkins in half. Scoop out seeds and place on a baking sheet; bake for 1 – 1-1/2 hours.

When the pumpkin is cooked and cool enough to handle, use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. This should make about 5 cups.

 

 

 

Add butter to a large pot or Dutch oven, on medium heat; add shallots and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Add pumpkin and broth to the pot, along with sage, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered for about 15 minutes.

Blend in a blender or immersion blender and blend the soup until smooth.

 

 

(Optional) Garnish with light sour cream and sage.  Makes 8 1/2 cups.
