Pumpkin Soup with Sourdough Sage Croutons Recipe

We love soup in our home, and I especially am a fan of creamy-style soups. This Thanksgiving-inspired dish has all the traditional smells that fill the air during the holiday season. You could also make this with butternut squash if desired. —Jenn Tidwell, Fair Oaks, California

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 9 cups cubed fresh pumpkin
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh sage
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 3 slices sourdough bread, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh sage


  1. In a Dutch oven, saute onion and carrots in oil for 5 minutes. Add pumpkin; cook 5-6 minutes longer. Stir in the broth, sage, garlic powder, salt, pepper and nutmeg; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until pumpkin is tender.
  2. Cool slightly. In a blender, process soup in batches until smooth. Return all to pan and heat through.
  3. For sweet cream, combine ingredients until smooth. For croutons, place bread in a small bowl; drizzle with oil and butter. Sprinkle with sage and toss to coat. Transfer to a small skillet; cook and stir over medium heat for 4-6 minutes or until lightly toasted.
  4. Garnish servings with sweet cream and croutons. Yield: 10 servings (2-1/2 quarts, 2 cups croutons, 1/2 cup sweet cream).
