  • 1 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cups pumpkin puree'
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • ¾ teaspoon Truvia or 1 ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 3 fresh sage leaves minced + whole sage leaves for garnish
  • 1 Tbs smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon liquid smoke
  • ½ pound smoked gouda cheese shredded
  • ¼ 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' but you can use store bought as well.
Using bone broth in place of chicken broth really amps up the nutritional benefit!
