Pumpkin and Pear Bisque with Goat Cheese Recipe

Pumpkin and Pear Bisque with Goat Cheese


Roasted pumpkin and pears add sweet undertones to this creamy bisque topped with crumbled goat cheese.


  • 1 (2 pound) pie pumpkin, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 3 pears - peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 slices bacon, diced
  • ½ onion, diced
  • ½ bulb fennel, diced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup crumbled goat cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place pumpkin chunks on one side of a rimmed baking sheet. Place sliced pears on the other side. Drizzle with olive oil and mix around to coat.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven, stirring halfway through, until pumpkin is easily pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, fry bacon in a large pot over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add onion and fennel; cook until onion is soft and clear, about 5 minutes. Add butter and garlic; season with cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Add pumpkin and pears. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Pour in chicken broth to cover all the vegetables. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth. Serve hot, with crumbled goat cheese on top.
