How to Cook Holiday Pumpkin Soup
Serve With: Dollop of sour cream and sprinkle of nutmeg or hulled pumpkin seeds (also called ‘pepitas’), if desired.
Prep Time: 12 min
Cook Time: ~ 55 min
Yield: ~ 9-10 cups of soup
* 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and roast fresh pumpkin in 2 inch dice coated with olive oil, salt and pepper until fork tender and golden brown – about 30 min.
* If using canned pumpkin, skip step #1.
2. Heat olive oil in large stock pot on medium heat.
3. Add onions, cloves and meat(s) and gently brown.
4. Add celery, pumpkin, milk and broth.
* Tip: Do not boil this mixture, as you will scald the milk and really change the flavor.
5. Once heated through, add brown sugar, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and pepper.
6. Slowly add heavy cream and heat through.
7. Lightly mash vegetables to your desired consistency and finish with butter.
* Tip: To keep hot until ready to serve, place over simmer heat for a few minutes.
8. Serve in beautiful bowls and top with sour cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg or hulled pumpkin seeds (also called ‘pepitas’), if desired.
