This Roasted Pumpkin Soup is perfect for a fall dinner or lunch, Made with fresh pumpkin, cream along with a few spices.
A wonderful fall meal idea that incorporates the wonderful flavor of pumpkin. I like to top it with a little sour cream and pepitas to dress it up a bit.
I know that it isn't technically quite fall yet, but let's face it, why not make fall last a few more days by starting early? I have been putting a few fall decorations around the house, even though it is still pretty warm outside.

How to make Roasted Pumpkin Soup
You just need a few main ingredients to make this recipe:
Pumpkin –Fresh pumpkin makes this soup special. Pick an orange pumpkin and cut it open to remove the flesh. Remove the pumpkin seeds in order to get to the "meat" of the pumpkin. Cut the flesh carefully away from the skin. You do not want the skin in this recipe.
Onion – I prefer using white or purple onion for this recipe, but you can use yellow onion too. Peel away the outer layer prior to cutting in quarters.
Cream– You can use heavy cream or half and half to make this recipe. You can also use coconut milk instead of cream.
