Roasted Pumpkin & Garlic Soup...

julipmade151 This is rainy, nasty, cold day soup. Bus running late soup. Twitter suspending your account within 3 hours of stepping out of the dark ages and joining it soup. No more coffee in the office kitchen soup. Non-stop foot cramp soup. Pretty much it cures all... yeah it is THAT good. The honey adds a touch of sweetness and the cumin adds a hint of spice. For a weekday meal, I'd suggest roasting the pumpkins the night before and blending the soup the next day.
julipmade149 Ingredients:
  • 2 pie pumpkins, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • cumin, teaspoon
  • salt and pepper
  • 6-8 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup cream
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 Fahrenheit.
  2. In a roasting pan, mix the pumpkin, honey, garlic, onion, cumin, and salt and pepper.
  3. Roast for approximately 40-50 minutes until tender.
  4. Blend roasted pumpkin mixture in blender, slowly adding stock.  Once it has reached the consistency you want, add the cream.
  5. Reheat on the stove top.  Salt and pepper as needed.
  6. Serve with a dollop of creme fraiche on top!

PS.  Anyone ever experience technical difficulties with Twitter?  I FINALLY decided to give in and get an account.  Within 3 hours of getting it, my account was "suspended" for no reason.  Has anyone ever experienced this?  #FreeJulipMade c/o Vmacandcheese!


  1. Yuuuurm. Could probably sub the pumpkin for almost any type of winter squash too, don't you think? Sometimes I don't feel like wrestling with a pumpkin.
