A Fall Favorite!
Pumpkin Soup w/Gruyere
Ingredients

One 5-6 pound pumpkin
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
6 cups gf Chicken Stock
1 bay leaf
1-1/2 cup light cream
2 Tablespoons grated orange zest
2 Tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 pound gruyere cheese, shredded
Salt and white pepper
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

Directions
Cut pumpkin in half and scoop out all strings and seeds. With a sturdy knife, cut away hard peel. Coarsely chop pumpkin flesh; you should have 8 cups.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and saute until golden,
4-5 minutes. Add gf stock, chopped pumpkin and bay leaf. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until tender, 15-30 minutes. Discard bay leaf.

Using a food processor, puree soup in small batches.

Return puree to pan and stir in cream, orange zest, orange and lemon juices, nutmeg and ginger. Reserve a handful of cheese and sprinkle the rest into soup, stirring over low heat until cheese melts and blends in.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour into a warmed tureen, individual bowls or pumpkin shells and garnish with reserved cheese and chives.
