I have mentioned Skinnytaste previously. This is one of my favorite recipe sources. Gina does a marvelous job creating recipes that are tasty and healthy. I recommend that you go to her website to see for yourself what is offered there.
This recipe for Roasted Pumpkin Sage Soup appeared a few weeks ago. I fudged a bit and used canned pumpkin as I didn't have any fresh pumpkin ready to roast.
Pumpkin Sage Soup
5 cups pumpkin
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup shallots, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
4 cups fat free, low sodium chicken broth (vegetable broth can be substituted for vegetarians)
1 Tablespoon fresh sage, plus more for garnish
salt and fresh pepper to taste
reduced fat sour cream for garnish, optional
- Saute shallots in oil on medium heat about 4 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook an additional minute.
- Add pumpkin and broth to the pot, along with sage, salt, and pepper, and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered for about 15 minutes.
In the pot, ready to cook.
A very tasty way to begin a meal!
