- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Heat the Onion Broth in a soup pot, covered, over medium heat for 5to 6 minutes.
- Toss the sunchokes, celery root, and sweet potato in the safflower oil and season with pinch of salt. Spread onto a baking sheet and roast for 30 to 40 minutes.
- Reduce the heat of the Onion Broth to low and simmer, covered, simmering until the root vegetables are done.
- Remove the root vegetables from the oven, add to the pot with the simmering broth, and continue to simmer, covered, for 15 more minutes.
- Meanwhile, reduce the oven temperature to 350°F and make the pepita garnish.
- Toss the pepitas with the avocado oil, smoked paprika, salt, and rubbed sage. Spread onto a baking sheet and toast for 10 minutes, or until dry.

- Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until even and smooth. Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon butter for an extra rich and creamy taste, if desired.
- Divide the soup among bowls and top each serving with the pepita garnish, black pepper, and green parts of the scallions.
