Pumpkin flesh has a mild, sweet flavor. The smaller the pumpkin, the sweeter and more subtle it will be. Like all orange vegetables, pumpkins and sweet potatoes are very high in beta carotene. This luscious soup gives you a double helping of this vital nutrient. Leave out the bacon and substitute vegetable stock for chicken stock to make the soup vegetarian.
- 2 ounces reduced-sodium bacon or turkey bacon, coarsely chopped
- 2 shallots or small onions, finely chopped
- 2 quarts chicken stock or vegetable stock
- 12 ounces sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 can (16 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin or 2 cups cooked winter squash
- 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper
- Pinch of ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
