Brown Butter Pumpkin Soup

Decadent browned butter sauce is an optional topping for this hearty, wholesome soup that puts your wintered over (or fresh!) pumpkins to excellent use. Serve with a generous salad of leafy greens for a meal balanced in texture and temperature. Tip: You can swap in canned pumpkin puree (about two cans) if fresh pumpkins aren’t in season!
