  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup siggi’s 4% plain skyr
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 shallot diced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

Pepita parmesan topping (optional)

  • 1/4 cup pepitas (green pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese


  • In a soup pot over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, shallot, and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until translucent and fragrant.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, stir to combine, and bring to a light simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Transfer soup mixture to a blender or use an emulsion blender to puree the soup.
  • Pour the soup back into the pot and continue cooking for an additional 10 minutes.
  • For the pepita parmesan topping: pre-heat oven to 325°F. Place pepitas on one half of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper so none are on top of each other. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of parmesan cheese and pat down into circles on the other half of the pan. Repeat with remaining cheese. Bake for 8-10 minutes until cheese is golden and crisp.
  • Pour soup into bowls and top with parmesan cheese crisps, pepitas and extra freshly ground black pepper if you desire!
