WHITE BEAN AND PUMPKIN SOUP BISQUE WITH SAGE PESTO RECIPE
This is two recipes in one: a creamy, rich pumpkin bisque and an earthy sage pesto, the perfect makings of a speedy first course for a holiday meal or a light lunch or dinner.
The soup can be made a few days ahead and then topped with fresh pesto to keep the flavor and color vibrant when serving.
If you have a real pumpkin laying around, make your own pumpkin puree for even more homemade goodness.
Blendtec or Vitamix and a few other high power blenders can heat soup through friction, but you can make this recipe in a regular blender as well – just return it to the stove at the end to cook.
Easily make this a delicious vegan soup by swapping butter for a quality oil, chicken stock for vegetable stock and using a milk substitute and vegan parmesan cheese (I love the Follow Your Heart Brand).
Aside from smoothies, I LOVE making soups in my blender. If you’re like me click here for more Vitamix soup recipes.
