Roasted Pumpkin and Root Vegetable Soup
Roasted Pumpkin and Root Vegetable Soup is an easy, veggie loaded soup with delicious flavorings from curry, cumin, coriander and nutmeg. This is a soup that will become your new favorite cold weather, comforting meal.
Fall/autumn officially begins in 2 days and it’s one of my favorite times of the year (along with Christmas). The cooler weather means I can finally break out my sweaters, maybe a jacket and of course there is the food that I love to make and eat. The produce, the soups, crockpot meals, roasts and anything with butternut squash or pumpkin.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, roasting is the best way to prepare vegetables and this time of the year my oven is always on roasting something.
Sure, you can make this soup with the vegetables boiled in the stock, but why? Why not make this the best pumpkin soup? The browning and caramelization you get from roasting is second to none and there is no other way to get this kind of easy and added flavor.
Is this pumpkin soup sweet?
The only sweetness in this soup is what comes from the vegetables. In addition to the roasting of the vegetables, I’ve added corn for sweetness, but that is the only sweet element.
This Roasted Pumpkin and Root Vegetable Soup is finished with sour cream. You make think sour cream is an odd ingredient to add to soup, but it adds a lovely creamy texture. Cream can also be added but I do like the little ‘tang’ that the sour cream adds. Try it, you’ll like it.
Sour cream substitution
Substitute 3/4 cup of whole milk or heavy cream instead of sour cream.
Pumpkin has fiber, potassium and vitamin C which are all good for heart health. Plus, this soup is really low calorie, it’s only 281 calories per serving!
What spice pair well with pumpkin?
For this savory recipe, there are so many spices that go well. I use cumin, coriander, curry powder (is popular) and nutmeg.
