  • 1 small Sugar Pie pumpkin 3- to 3½-pound
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground cardamom
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 6 cups vegetable broth plus more if needed for thinning
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Kosher salt
  • ground pepper


  • Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Halve the pumpkin, remove the seeds, and cut into 8 to 10 slices. Reserve the seeds for another use (such as roasting in the oven).
  • Arrange the pumpkin slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until softened and gently caramelized. Let cool slightly, then remove the skin and cut the flesh into 1-inch pieces.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, heat the oil.
  • Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic, coriander, cumin, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and cloves and cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant.
  • Add the broth and pumpkin cubes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat. Let the soup cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor and purée until smooth.
  • Return the soup to the pot, bring to a gentle simmer, and add the cream. (If the soup is too thick, you can add an extra cup of broth to thin.)
  • Stir to combine and let the soup simmer for 1 to 2 minutes more; season with salt and pepper.
  • Divide the soup among bowls and serve.
