45 minutes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cups diced pumpkin or butternut squash (1/2-inch thick)
  • 1 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 5 fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 can (19 fl oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (19 fl oz) black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup finely grated Romano cheese
  1. In a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add next 8 ingredients and cook, stirring often until vegetables soften, about 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; simmer, stirring occasionally, until pumpkin is tender, about 20 minutes. Thicken soup by mashing some pumpkin against the side of the pot with a wooden spoon.
