What do you do with pureed pumpkin besides the standard pumpkin pie? I make all manner of dishes, from sweet to savory. This soup hits the spot on cool fall days.

What you'll need

  • 1/2 lb bacon (we use turkey) diced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups black beans, cook first if using dried beans
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups corn kernels
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • One bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Serves 4-6

How to make it

  1. Sautee onion in a small amount of oil until translucent.

  2. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Immediately reduce to a simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes until vegetables are tender.

  3. Remove bay leaf.

  4. Cook bacon until crisp and drain well.

  5. Pour soup into bowls and top with bacon bits and cheddar.
