Roasted Pumpkin and Squash Soup with Sage

I saw this Sweet Potato Soup in my Google Reader and it inspired me. I went home that night and whipped up this soup. I didn’t follow Amy’s recipe, but I just kept imagining that picture of the bowl of warm creamy soup.

I used homemade pumpkin puree and ambercup squash that I had in the fridge but you could use either squash or pumpkin when making this. I would recommend using homemade puree here because the smooth texture and pumpkin flavor really shine in this soup. In a pinch, you could obviously use the canned stuff..

Roasted Pumpkin and Squash Soup with Sage

Yield: Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp olive oil
2 shallots, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
25 oz (2 1/2 cups) pureed roasted pumpkin, squash, or a combination of the two
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1/4 cup chopped fresh sage
1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup heavy cream

Directions:

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a dutch oven or other large pot. When the oil is warm, add the shallots and allow to cook until they start to turn translucent. Add the garlic and stir. Cook until aromatic, about 30 seconds.

Stir in the puree and broth. Add sage, nutmeg, smoked paprika, and salt. Bring soup mixture to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add the heavy cream and taste for seasoning. Add more salt if necessary and simmer another 5 minutes. Puree with an immersion blender or in batches in a blender.

    One of my favorites! You read my mind…I made a spread with my roasted zucchini yesterday.

    Another thing I like to do when roasting zucchini is to slice it very thin, and then it comes out almost like a chip. I have eaten entire zucchinis on my own that way!

    yum, yum, yummmm! Love roasting vegetables! If you aren’t in the mood to turn on the over; use your same exact recipe and throw them on the grill… but cut them long ways at about a 1/2 inch thick! It’s been my favorite way to eat them this summer! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Just thought I’d stop back in and thank you for sharing this idea… I’d never thought of roasting my zucchini before. I made it last night for dinner using three medium zucchini and my kids ate every single bit of it. They LOVED it! So thank you for giving me a new way to get them eating fresh veggies.
