Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 leeks (white and light green parts), sliced 1/4 inch thick and rinsed
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium pumpkin or 1 1/2 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the leeks, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the pumpkin cubes and canned puree, then the broth. Simmer until the pumpkin is tender, about 25 minutes. Stir in 1 3/4 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Working in batches, ladle the soup into a blender and puree until smooth. Divide among individual bowls and top with the rosemary.
