Directions

Soup

  1. Heat butter in a large stockpot. Add onion and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until translucent. Stir in garlic, ginger and cinnamon cooking for 1 minute. Add squash, sweet potatoes, apples and chicken stock.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 30-40 minutes.
  3. Puree soup in a blender or with an immersion blender. If the blender was used, return soup to the pot. Add black pepper and sea salt to taste. Finish with pumpkin seed garnish.

  2. Place toasted seeds with garlic, parsley, sea salt and olive oil in a food processor and pulse until you have a coarse mixture. If preferred, seasonings can also be finely chopped by hand.
