Servings: 8 bowls


3 tablespoons of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
2 Leeks, trimmed of tough green tops and chopped
3 large Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
2 medium Bell Peppers, chopped
2 1/4 pounds Pumpkin, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2- by 1-inch-thick pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons of Chopped Fresh Majoram
1/4 teaspoon of Crushed Red Pepper
2 Bay Leaves
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 1/4 cups Frozen Corn
6 cups Vegetable Broth


Heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add leeks and cook until very soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in green peppers, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until peppers soften, about 8 more minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and cook until pumpkin is tender, about 30 minutes.
