Fanika's Favorite Pumpkin Soup

Serves: 6 
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 30 min
Total time: 40 min


  • 1 butternut squash (around 1kg - 1.5kg / 2-3 pounds)
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1000 ml (4 cups) vegetable broth
  • 250 ml (1 cup) heavy cream (or soy cream)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg, cumin
  • salt, pepper


  1. Peel the butternut squash, remove the seeds, and thinly slice it. Peel the onion and thinly slice it. Peel the garlic and finely dice. Place a pot over low heat. Add the oil, butter, onion, and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes, then add the sage and squash. Cook for 10 - 15 minutes or until the squash is soft, stirring occasionally. Quick tip:The thinner the squash is sliced, the sooner it will cook.
  2. Add the vegetable broth (or water), and continue to simmer for 10 minutes covered with a lid.
  3. Remove from the heat and transfer to a blender (or use an immersion blender) to blend into a smooth soup. Pour in the heavy cream, and season to taste with salt, pepper, nutmeg and cumin. Stir well.
  4. Divide the soup between six plates, top with 100% pumpkin seed oil, add micro-greens for garnish and slice of toasted sourdough bread.
