    Simply Chris's Note:

    This hearty soup makes a great fall meal, served with a salad and some warm crusty bread (we usually have a whole wheat baguette), or use it as a first course. It is derived from a Pumpkin Soup recipe I found several years ago in The Wine Spectator. For a dressy presentation garnish with a bit of Creme Fraiche and some julienned prosciutto. I've made this recipe using brown sugar and also substituting Spenda and my family has not noticed a difference. I have also substituted low fat evaporated milk for the heavy cream with no issues in the final result. This soup can be prepared up to 24 hours before serving. re-heat over very low heat prior to serving.

    3. 3
      Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until tender.
    4. 4
      During cooking, add hot water to the pan as needed to prevent from burning.
    5. 5
      While the squash is roasting, cook the onions, ginger and butter in a large heavy pan over very low heat for about 45-50 minutes until onions are reduced in bulk and very soft.
    6. 6
      Be careful not to burn the onions.
    7. 7
      Remove the pumpkin and squash from the oven and cool until easy to handle.
    8. 8
      Scoop out the meat from the roasted pumpkin and squash and add to the cooked onions.
    9. 9
      Add the stock and bring to a simmer.
    10. 10
      Puree the soup in small batches in a blender or food processor, then return it to the pot.
    11. 11
      Add the cream and reheat (do not bring back to boil or simmer).
    12. 12
      If the soup is too thick, add more stock until the desired consistency is reached.

      Season with the salt, sugar substitute, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.

      WOW! This was a wonderful surprise, not at all what I thought it would taste like. My spouse wanted to try a squash/pumpkin soup recipe and we're glad we found this one. Nicely spicy, and the cayenne pepper adds just a bit of zing to it.

      I have always wanted to try pumpkin bisque but as I am not overly fond of pumkin I always shied away. However I love different kinds of squash and so this recipe fit the bill perfectly! I also loved all the onion in this...the flavor is wonderful. I made my sourdough rosemary potato bread to go with it and it was the perfect combo. Thank you for a lovely fall dinner Chris!
