  • Melt butter in a large pot, add diced onions, minced garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add sliced shiitake mushrooms, cover the pot and sauté over medium heat until tender. About 8-10 minutes.
  • Stir in Chinese Five Spice and maple syrup and simmer for another minute.
  • Add pumpkin puree, vegetable broth, and heavy cream and simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


  • This recipe can easily be double or even triple. 
  • If you like a thinner, more brothy soup, increase the amount of vegetable broth.
