Last night I was on Pinterest and became totally ensconced in Pinning. I know you understand because if you’re on that site it’s bound to happen at some time or other.   So.o.o imagine my surprise when I pinned this Roasted Pumpkin Soup image and before you could say “soups on” an avalanche of other pinners had taken notice. In fact this pin has been on of my most popular to date. I thought to myself if it’s that much in demand I best feature the pin and corresponding recipe for all you lovely Go To Glamour Girl Readers. I would LOVE to say this is my own creation-but I must fess up and say it is one of the amazing recipes from the Grand Dame of Domesticity-Martha Stewart. The recipe directives list it as EASY with a prep time of 5 minutes and total time to table of 40 minutes. If you have any further questions: I have enclosed the link. Enjoy and  Happy Pinning!


Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Prep time 5 minutes  Total time 40 minutes


  • 2 3/4 pounds sugar pumpkin or butternut squash, halved and seeded
  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered through the stem
  • 2 shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, caps wiped clean
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 5 cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium vegetable stock


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut pumpkin into 2-inch pieces. Combine pumpkin, onion, mushrooms, and garlic on a rimmed baking sheet. Add oil and 2 teaspoons salt; toss to coat, then spread in a single layer. Roast until pumpkin is tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife, about 30 minutes, rotating pan and tossing vegetables halfway through. Let cool, then remove skins.
  2. Transfer vegetables to a medium saucepan; heat over medium. Pour in 2 cups stock; puree with an immersion blender until smooth. With the blender running, slowly add remaining 3 cups stock, and puree until smooth. Bring soup just to a simmer. Remove from heat, and season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm
