Pumpkin and Pear Bisque with Goat Cheese

Pumpkin and Pear Bisque with Goat Cheese

Fresh pumpkin and succulent pears are roasted together before being blended into a creamy bisque. From the caramelization that results with roasting veggies, these two perfect fall flavors deepen dramatically and make a savory soup with a sweet undertone.

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Step 2

    Place pumpkin chunks on one side of a rimmed baking sheet. Place sliced pears on the other side. Drizzle with olive oil and mix around to coat.
  3. Step 3

    Roast in the preheated oven, stirring halfway through, until pumpkin is easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, fry bacon in a large pot over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add onion and fennel; cook until onion is soft and clear, about 5 minutes. Add butter and garlic; season with cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Add pumpkin and pears. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Pour in chicken broth to cover all the vegetables. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth. Serve hot, with crumbled goat cheese on top.
