Pumpkin Recipes Gone Wild 2 – Soups and Stews

Pumpkin Recipes Gone Wild Part 2: HybridRastaMama.com

Remember my little obsession with Pumpkin? Of course you do because I wrote all about it in my Pumpkin Recipes Gone Wild – Main Dishes post. Well, I could not stop there. There are just too many good pumpkin recipes out there. So, to keep you all busy in the kitchen, here are MORE pumpkin recipes, this time all dedicated to soups and the like. Don’t ever say I refuse to share pumpkin love!

Pumpkin PureeAlso, if I am not making my own pumpkin puree, I have two go-to brands that I keep in stock. I am not a huge fan of canned foods so the BPA free tetra-pak of organic pumpkin is what I look for. My first go-to brand is the Pacific Natural Foods brand which is ONLY pumpkin…nothing else is added. I purchase it from my affiliate partner Amazon in packs of 12 and it is a great price! My second go-to brand is the Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin, also in a tetra-pak. I find the best deal on this in the Baking Supply section over at Tropical Traditions, another affiliate partner.

Ingredients
  1. • 1 medium pumpkin
  2. • 1 medium butternut squash
  3. • 1 cup leeks
  4. • 2 small cloves garlic
  5. • 1/4 cup olive oil (I love this brand)
  6. • salt and pepper
  7. • 5-6 cups home made broth
  8. • 1/4-1/2 cup cream
  9. • 2 teaspoons honey (this one is divine)
  10. • a few pinches of freshly grated nutmeg
  11. • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. 2. Cut pumpkin and butternut squash into 2-inch chunks, removing the inner seeds and fibrous bits. I roasted my pumpkin and squash with the peel on and removed the cooked flesh from the peel once baked.
  3. 3. Slice the white flesh up until the green stalks of several leeks.
  4. 4. Toss the pumpkin, squash, whole garlic cloves and leeks on a baking tray with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until a fork inserted in the flesh of the pumpkin and squash meets no resistance.
  5. 5. Remove from the oven and allow them to rest until cool enough to handle.
  6. 6. When cooled, use a spoon to scoop the cooked flesh away from the squash peel and place in a large saucepan.
  7. 7. Add the roasted garlic and leeks to the pan too.
  8. 8. Add 3 cups of warm broth and using a hand blender, blend and breakdown the squash flesh with the broth. If you don’t have a hand blender, blending the chunky soup in a regular blender in batches should work too.
  9. 9. Add 2 to 3 more cups of broth and blend until you’ve reached the desired consistency.
  10. 10. Add honey and nutmeg.
  11. 11. Cook soup over medium heat for 30 minutes.
  12. 12. Add cream and salt and pepper to taste. Stir.
  13. 13. Serve warm.

    When you say that you like sweet rice flour in the recipes does that mean that when you make them using sweet rice flour that you use sweet rice flour for the full amount of flour called for in that recipe? And since that makes it gluten free do you add any starches? I’d like to make a couple of the recipes but I wanted to ask before making them LOL.
