When we went on our annual pumpkin patch trip all the kiddos got pumpkins to carve and my sister and I picked up two sweet pumpkins to roast! Using a straightforward recipe I roasted the pumpkin slices this weekend and we ate some with dinner and then the rest I puréed in the food processor and froze for pumpkin soup. Here is a breakdown of what I did!

Then I roasted it at 400 degrees for fifteen minutes until fork tender:
After I served it with dinner, I puréed the rest with just a little bit of chicken stock:
And then put it in a container to freeze:
