Pumpkin Sage Soup

Jump to Recipe

Enjoy a hot bowl of flavorful Pumpkin Sage Soup this season. This savory soup is simple to make, nutrient-rich and can be made to accommodate any dietary restrictions.

Start by preheating your oven to 400 °F. Then it’s time to prep your vegetables, which will be the base of this dish! Chop onions, carrots, celery, apples and potatoes and add to a bowl; then add bold seasonings of garlic, pepper, salt and sage, and a hint of sweetness by adding in brown sugar – creating the perfect blend of salty and sweet. Cover your ingredients in olive oil and mix thoroughly, ensuring the veggies are generously coated before transferring them to a baking sheet. 

Once the vegetable mix is roasted to tender perfection, add it to a large pot along with canned pumpkin purée, vegetable stock and salt and pepper to taste. 

Now it’s time to blend! To create the best velvety consistency, transfer the pot ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth. For an extra rich taste, add your choice of cream and any additional spices you desire.

To add texture and crunch to your soup, top with pumpkin seeds or make 5-minute cheesy French baguettes! To make the crostini recipe, simply place a baguette on a cookie sheet and slice in increments, then fill in the slits with cheese and any desired seasonings. Bake for 5 minutes until you have gooey, cheesy bread! 

Whether you’re serving for a party or making this dish for a dinner party, this Pumpkin Sage Soup with French baguette will be a fan favorite!
