Ground cumin and grated fresh ginger give this pumpkin-bean soup a touch of class. Serve the creamy blended recipe as a main dish or side dish. A swirl of yogurt and a sprinkling of pepitas (pumpkin seeds) finish the bowl.

  • Add the vegetable broth, cannellini beans, pumpkin, and salt. Heat through. Remove from heat and puree until smooth with an immersion blender.

  • Set aside 1/4 cup of VOSKOS® Nonfat Honey Greek Yogurt to use as topper. Whisk remaining yogurt into soup.

This did not taste like a pumpkin soup. It was more like a thin bean broth and cumin soup. The cumin was completely dominant as that was all I could taste with a heavy ginger after taste. I even reduced the ginger. I hate rating recipes low even oddly despite wasting ever costly food ingredients. The photo looked great too but unfortunately no one would eat this one and attempts to fix it afterwards just did not amount to changing the odd heavy flavors much. Read More
