Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 4 -6
- 1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 3 cups pumpkin puree'
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 3/4 tsp Truvia or 1 1/2 tsp sugar
- 3 fresh sage leaves minced + whole sage leaves for garnish
- 1 Tbs smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp liquid smoke
- 1/2 pound smoked gouda cheese shredded
- 1/4 cup Sour Cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Pepitas optional
Saute' the onion in the olive oil over medium heat until tender in a medium saucepan.
Add the pumpkin puree' and chicken broth and whisk until well blended.
Once the soup is hot, add minced sage, paprika, and liquid smoke. Stir.
Add the cheese a little at a time, waiting for it to melt before adding more. Continue to stir.
Add salt, pepper and sour cream.
Adjust seasonings if need be.
While soup is simmering, heat vegetable oil to hot, so it shimmers a bit. Add a couple fresh sage leaves and fry for about 10 seconds.
Lift out with a slotted spoon and set on a paper towel lined plate to cool.
Serve soup with crispy sage leaves and a few pepitas.
I like to use homemade pumpkin puree' (www.artfrommytable.com/how-to-make-pumpkin-puree/), but you can use store bought as well.
Using bone broth in place of chicken broth really amps up the nutritional benefit!
