Pumpkin Soup with Pomegranate Crème Fraîche

  • Author: Misfits Market


  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil, such as avocado oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup dry white wine, such as sauvignon blanc
  • 4 cups unsweetened pumpkin purée
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle purée
  • 1 cup crème fraîche, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds, for garnish
  • ½ cup lightly crushed blue corn tortilla chips, for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives, for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the wine and cook until completely reduced. Add the pumpkin purée, the spices, and 3 cups of stock and whisk together to combine. Stir in the honey and the chipotle. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 20 minutes.
  2. Working in batches, purée the soup in a blender and return it back to the pot. Cook the soup for an additional 10 minutes, adding the additional cup of stock if the soup is too thick. Add ½ cup crème fraîche and whisk thoroughly to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Ladle soup into bowls, garnish with a dollop of the pomegranate crème fraîche, pomegranate seeds, crushed blue corn chips, and chives.
  4. For the pomegranate crème fraîche: Add the remaining ½ cup crème fraîche, pomegranate molasses, salt and pepper to a bowl, swirl to combine, and set aside.
