  • In a small to medium stock pot, dice and sauté onions and garlic
  • peel, clean and dice your pumpkin
  • dice your additional items;  potato and peppers (note:  potatoes are really only added to this soup to give it thickness from the starch in potatoes...relatively no taste comes from this, and no need to peel the potato)
  • Add your herbs (rosemary and sage)
  • Cook it all up together, roughly 5 minutes or so and add your bouillon stock.  Either vegetable stock, or a chicken stock is suitable
  • Cook until pumpkin and potatoes are soft, usually about 20 minutes.  Take off heat, and puree until smooth.  Add your final bits of cream.  Stir in and serve.
