Pumpkin and White Bean Soup with Sourdough Croutons
Nutritional yeast flakes lend a savory, cheesy flavor to pumpkin and white bean soup. The flakes season the soup and the sourdough croutons.
3 thick slices sourdough bread, cut into cubes
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
4 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes, divided
1 large yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin purée
1 can (15 ounces) white beans (such as navy), rinsed and drained
1 quart (4 cups) chicken broth
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Place the bread cubes in a large bowl. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, then toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of yeast flakes over the bread, then toss again.
On a rimmed baking sheet, spread the bread in an even layer. Toast 10-15 minutes, or until slightly crunchy, then set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan over medium-high, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the onion, garlic and red pepper flakes. Saute until the onion is tender, about 6 minutes. Add the pumpkin, beans and broth. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
Transfer the soup, working in batches if necessary, to a blender and purée until smooth. Return the soup to the saucepan. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of yeast flakes and stir well. Season the soup with salt and pepper, then ladle into serving bowls and top with the croutons.
