This rich and delicious soup is perfect for any holiday table. This easy version skips the messy, and time-consuming chore of cooking and pureeing fresh pumpkins. As most chefs will tell you, pure, canned pumpkin will have a better flavor than that fresh pumpkin patch gourd you picked yourself. Save that for the front porch!
2 cups canned pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
3 cups chicken broth
Dash ground white pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cream or half-and-half
Optional: shelled pumpkin seeds (for garnish)
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
In a 4-qt saucepan, saute the onions in butter until transparent. Add all the other ingredients, except the cream. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very soft.
Place in a blender and carefully puree until completely smooth. Pour back into the saucepan and add the cream. Bring back to a gentle simmer, turn off heat, and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
Serve in warm bowls, and garnish with pumpkin seeds.
