This is one of my favorite fall soups. You can also make it with roasted butternut squash. I like my soups thick so I usually don't add a lot of water, but that is optional. I used 2 fairly large sugar pumpkins, weighing about 2 pounds total.

  • Brush pumpkin flesh with olive oil. Place pumpkins face down on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pumpkins are easily pierced with a fork, 45 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool for 10 minutes, and peel away skin. Set pumpkins aside.

  • Melt butter in a large pot over low heat. Add onion and ginger and cook until soft and translucent, about 10 minutes. Add apple and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in chicken broth and mix in pumpkins. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until apple is soft, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Puree soup using an immersion blender. Season with maple syrup, white pepper, and salt.

  • Add water and cream and heat until soup is hot, but not boiling. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Cook's Note:

For a vegetarian soup, use vegetable broth.

I love this soup. I make it to the recipe. Roasting the pumpkin brings out the flavor nicely. I use a granny smith apple. Read More
