This soup is rich, aromatic & satisfying! Perfect for a crisp fall weekend afternoon.


  1. Add the oil to a large heavy-bottom pot over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until soft, 5 min. Stir in the garlic.

  2. Add the squash, cinnamon, and coriander and cook 1 min. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until vegetables are very tender, 10 min.

  3. Remove from heat and carefully transfer soup to a blender. Blend until smooth (or blend in-pot with immersion blender).

  4. Return soup to pot and bring to a simmer on medium-high. Add 2½ cups shredded Beemster Pumpkin Spice cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Divide soup between 4 bowls and garnish with remaining ½ cup cheese.
