Equipment

  • Blender
  • Heavy bottom pot

Ingredients
  

Soup

  • 1 Onion (or 2 Shallots)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Green onion
  • 2 tbsp Sour cream I used 14%, but can use 5% instead.
  • 1 1/2 cup Table cream 18% or any other vegetal fat milk
  • 1 big can of pumpkin puree or 3 pounds of pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cup Vegetable stock
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Pumpkin Spice

Toppings (optional)

  • 1 Chicken breast
  • 1/2 Lemon juice
  • Parsley
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions
 

This recipe has two options.

Option 1:

  • If you want to do it with roasted pumpkin, you should preheat the oven to 400 F.
    Carefully, cut the pumpkin in quarters, remove the seeds but not peel it off just yet.
    Place it on a sheet pan with parchment paper and olive oil.
    Add some salt and pepper on top and roast it for 45 minutes or until is soft.
    Let it cool for 15 minutes and remove the skin. It should be easy.

Option 2:

  • If you are using a can of pumpkin puree, start here. 
  • Chop the onion or shallots and garlic. 
  • Heat a heavy bottom pot, add some olive oil and sauté the onion and garlic. 
  • Cook for about 10 mins or until the onion is golden. 
  • Then, add the pumpkin, milk of choice, broth, salt, pepper, and pumpkin spice and mix it with a wooden spoon until is combined. 
  • Let the soup simmer for 15 minutes but keep stirring it every 5 minutes. 
  • Once the soup is ready, remove it from the heat and add the mixture into a blender. 
  • Mix it all together for a minute. Be careful about the heat and steam coming from your soup.
  • Grab some bowls and serve the soup. 
  • Lastly, I love to add some toppings, like a tablespoon of sour cream with chopped green onion on top. Some olive oil and sprinkle a bit of kosher (or any) salt on top as well. Or maybe you have some toasts or croutons to add too.

Notes

Optional toppings: I usually like to add some sauté chicken on top too!
Just cut the chicken breast in squares and chop some garlic. Then, grab a pan, add some oil and when it’s hot, sauté the chicken with the garlic until is golden brown. Don’t forget to add the juice of half lemon, salt, pepper, and parsley while is cooking.
