  • Prep Time : 10 minutes
  • Cook Time : 1h 25 min
  • Yield : 10



  1. Take a pumpkin that weighs approximately 5-7 lbs.  Rip the stem off angrily and cut the pumpkin into quarters.  Remove the pumpkin's intestines with a spoon.  Then cut the quarters into halves.  Coat the pieces of pumpkin with extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper.
  2. Next slice a bulb of garlic in half.  Cut the tips off and coat with olive oil.
  3. Add the garlic and pumpkin pieces to a pan (pans) and roast in a preheated 400° oven for 30 minutes.  Then remove the garlic and return the pumpkin for 15 more minutes, until fork tender.
  4. When cooked let cool then remove the pumpkin skin by clawing it away, like a zombie, with your fingers.
  5. Add olive oil to a medium-high pot and add one chopped onion.  Cook for 1 minute.  Then squeeze in the roasted garlic.  Add the pumpkin and mash it a little with a pink spatula.  Then add 1 liter (or quart) of chicken stock.  Simmer on low-medium for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Blend the pumpkin in portions.  Use a cloth to capture the steam at the top of your blender to prevent burning your hands.
  7. Once blended return the pumpkin to the pot.  Season generously with 1 tablespoon of pepper, 1 teaspoon of salt, 4 tablespoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of Greek seasoning.  Add half of a small container of sour cream (125ml) and stir.  Let simmer on low for 30 minutes to an hour (the longer, the better).
  8. For the Candied Bacon garnish take 4 slices of bacon and place them on an oven pan lined with parchment paper.  Sprinkle with brown sugar and put in a 400° preheated oven.  After 6 minutes, flip the bacon and add more sugar.  Continue cooking for another 7 to 8 minutes until done.
  9. Once the bacon in cooked, remove it from the oven and chop it into bits.
  10. Poor the delicious pumpkin soup into a bowl.  Add a dollop of sour cream and a healthy sprinkling of candied bacon.  Serve and enjoy!

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced

    Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off?
