Instructions
  • In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion, garlic and pumpkin, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in the bouillon and water mixture. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender.
  • Stir in the cream and cream cheese. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  • In a blender or food processor, process the soup in batches, at low speed, until smooth. Return the soup to a saucepan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat through and serve.
  • TIP: Use 1 can (540 mL) of canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) instead of fresh pumpkin. Stir in the canned pumpkin with the bouillon mixture.
