BBQ Recipes: Roasted Pumpkin Soup

This comes to us from the fine folks at Weber.

Now I don't know about you, but I don't like pumpkin. I don't like pumpkin seeds and I don't like the smell of pumpkin when I cut it up into a Jack-O-Latern. I really don't like the smell when I cook it on a grill!

But many people do, fiercely I've found. My wife craves pumpkin pie this time of year and from what I know her obsession is far from unique. This soup comes close to the flavor of pumpkin pie and adds a mild smokey taste as well.

As you know I have a vegetarian in the house, and I've had to expand the cooking repertorie quite a bit lately. I made this yesterday for him and his vegetarian friends and they were suitably impressed. Personally, I hope my grill recovers quickly from the assault of the orange orb.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

This easy-to-make soup adds bright color and delicious fall flavor to any autumn or holiday feast.
