Ingredients

  • 1 medium-sized pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Cut the pumpkin in half, remove the seeds, and brush the flesh with olive oil. Place it on a baking sheet, cut side down, and roast for about 45-50 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender.
  3. While the pumpkin is roasting, heat the remaining olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté until translucent.
  4. Add the minced garlic, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg to the pot. Sauté for another minute until fragrant.
  5. Once the roasted pumpkin is ready, scoop out the flesh and add it to the pot with the sautéed onions and spices. Stir to combine.
  6. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes.
  7. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Alternatively, you can transfer the mixture to a blender and blend in batches.
  8. Return the pureed soup to the pot and stir in the heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  9. Serve hot, garnished with fresh parsley, and enjoy the warmth and flavor of autumn in a bowl!
