  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Two 15-ounce cans pure pumpkin puree (or 4 cups fresh roasted pumpkin)
  • 1 quart vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar (plus more for garnish)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

How to make this recipe

  1. Heat the butter in a large Dutch oven or stockpot. Sauté the onion over medium-high heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  2. Carefully stir in the pumpkin, stock, maple sugar, salt and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to medium and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the soup coats the back of a spoon. Off the heat, stir in the cream. Puree using an immersion or stand blender until very smooth.

  3. Serve the soup in bowls and garnish with maple sugar.
