Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Coat pumpkin slices in olive oil(or butter, once reasonably cooled), and bake in oven for approximately 40 minutes, turning occasionally, until soft. (Cooking time may vary, depending on your oven)
  3. When slices are cool enough to handle; remove skin, then place cooked pumpkin flesh into blender or food processor(you may have to do half at a time, depending on the size of your appliance), and puree, adding half & half in increments, until at desired smooth texture. It's okay if there is left over half & half.
  4. Place puree into large sauce pot. Whisk in stock, any left over half&half, and seasonings. Cook on medium low heat -whisking frequently- until warmed to your preferred temperature. Do not boil! This is a thick soup, be careful not to scald the bottom.

Presentation Suggestions

If you're serving this soup for a gathering, serve in nice ramekins, with a sprig of rosemary or a few baked pumpkin seeds, and a small dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt. Alternately, you could serve in roasted mini pumpkins, for a seasonal presentation. Some examples are shown in the images below.
