  • 1 medium yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic coarsely chopped
  • 2 15-ounce cans pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 15-ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup (omit for Whole30)
  • 2 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock for vegetarian/vegan)
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

To Add at the End

  • ½ cup heavy cream (or full-fat coconut milk)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Optional Toppings

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary optional
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage optional
  • Freshly ground pepper and salt to taste
  • freshly grated parmesan


  • Add the onion, garlic, pumpkin puree, tomato sauce, maple syrup, stock, cinnamon, and salt to a 6-quart slow cooker, stirring to combine.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8, or until the onion is very tender.
