  • Stove Top


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup onion minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Sage
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree
  • 32 ounces chicken broth

  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon

  • In a large skillet, add the olive oil and unsalted butter. Cook on high heat for one minute until butter is melted. Then add in the onion and garlic. Saute on medium heat for 2 minutes until soft and golden in color.
