Roasted Pumpkin Soup Bowls
The pumpkin can be roasted in an oven at 450 degrees F (232 degrees C) instead of grilled, if desired. To do this, place the cleaned pumpkin halves, sprayed on both sides with cooking spray, pulp-side-down on a baking sheet and roast for 20 to 30 minutes. Turn over and continue roasting with the pulp-side-up until tender and just starting to char, 20 to 30 minutes more.
Use gluten-free vegetable stock and tamari to make the soup gluten-free.
When pureeing with an immersion blender, take care to not spray or splash the soup by tilting the pot and placing the blender deep in the corner.
