Originating from the Native American tribes who first cultivated pumpkins, this humble soup has journeyed through time and across continents.
It became a staple in colonial American diets after the settlers adopted the versatile squash.
Today, pumpkin soup is a global comfort food, embraced by cultures worldwide and elevated with spices and ingredients unique to each region.

1 sugar pie pumpkin or butternut squash, quartered
2 tbsp olive oil
Course salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 tbsp sumac
1 large onion, diced
6 garlic cloves, chopped
4 cups chicken stock
3.5 tbsp unsalted butter
3.5 tbsp pine nuts
Parsley for garnish
1 tbsp cream (optional)
Place the quartered pumpkin onto a tray, drizzle with oil, and season with salt, pepper, and sumac.
Roast at 350 degrees F for about 40 minutes or until cooked through and the flesh is soft.
In a large pot over medium heat, pour in the olive oil. Once hot, add the onion, garlic, salt, and sauté for 3-4 minutes.
Once the pumpkin leaves the oven, scrape the flesh and place it in the pot with garlic and onion.
Pour over the stock and simmer for 10 minutes before you blend with an immersion or stick blender.
Chef’s Pro Tip
You can add garnishes, such as toasted pumpkin seeds, ground sumac, flavored oils, and different herbs.
You can also make this soup ahead and freeze away in batches.
Incredible! Great selection, great quality, always on time delivery. Save hours at night and with the kids it's a lifesaver!
Meals are impressive and make my life a lot easier!
I've been a customer for around 6 months and Meal Joy has made my life easier and the meals are well prepared, yummy and with healthy proportions. I especially like the fish options. You won't be disappointed!
I had the chicken farro bowl and it was amazing and tasted fresh! Love the meals
Excellent service - they take the guess work out of meal planning, and everything is delicious!
Amazing food. Real care and attention to the service and quality!
I decided to order Meal Joy on a whim after stumbling across the Instagram. Ive tried many meal prep services and I haven't been too impressed until now. I'm on my first week of meals and I am extremely happy. Fresh and delicious...always being on the go it's hard to prepare the foods to eat clean. Sergio was accommodating and made sure I received my meals in time after traveling on a Sunday. Will definitely be signing up for the weekly meals and already recommended friends..thank you!!
By far the best option around for tasty and easy prepared meals. The food is delicious and fresh, and best of all delivered to your door. The quantities are generous and the options change every week with something to please everyone. The owner Sergio is very accommodating and occasionally throws a nice surprise in with your order (chocolate dipped strawberries for Valentines Day). Wish I could have given it six stars.
Been a customer for two weeks straight now and couldn't be happier. Delicious, convenient, variety, portioned perfectly, reliable delivery service. I'd recommend to anyone who wants QUALITY food at an affordable price right to your door. I'm in love with the service and see myself being a longtime customer. Just ate Chipotle chicken dish (3/28/21) Absolutely amazing taste. Thank you MealJoy !!!
I’ve tried other meal prep companies and Meal Joy has been the best so far. The meals are well thought out, tasty and macros friendly. They were very responsive and my experience with their service has been great!
