Roasted Pumpkin Sage Soup


Pumpkin

In our most recent blog article, we listed all the amazing nutritional benefits from eating pumpkin! Check out our delicous recipe of the month for October below from skinnytaste.com.

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)


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 – 11/2 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.
