If you’ve never roasted a pumpkin, here’s your opportunity. A member of the gourd family, pumpkins are cousins to cucumbers, honeydews and zucchini. Antioxidant-rich and low-carb, this creamy, cold-weather soup comes together with the help of your oven, yielding a delicious starter to a festive meal, a side to a simple sandwich, or on its own for a light lunch. I’ll admit a hammer-like meat tenderizer and heavy-duty chef’s knife make this job, quite literally, painless.
