This pumpkin soup is a classic from my mother's kitchen. I remember that she would prepare it often and serve it with pieces of white cheese. If you would like to prepare a completely vegan version, just don't add cream and yogurt. It'll still be delicious! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 lb pumpkin, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 leek, washed and coarsely chopped (white part only)
  • 1 large onion, cut into pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 cups Progresso™ chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Yoplait® Greek plain yogurt

Directions

  • 1
    Place the pumpkin, leek, onion, garlic and broth in a large pot over medium heat and cook for 15 minutes or until the pumpkin is soft.
  • 2
    Remove from the heat and combine with a hand mixer until the cream is velvety soft and without lumps. Add the heavy cream now if you’d like. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper to your liking.
  • 3
    Serve hot with a spoonful of yogurt.

  • If you don't have a hand mixer, you can use a regular blender, you should let it cool first because the heat may cause the blender to explode and burn you.
