Start with Leeks, celery, and garlic and about 1 cup of veggie broth – Simmer until tender (about 5 minutes or so).
Add pumpkin, pepper, rosemary, and remaining vegetable broth. Cook about 25 minutes.
Use ladle and spoon soup into blender until about half full, blend until smooth. (Entire batch will not fit into a household sized blender). Continue to do this until all ingredients have been blended. Stir together in a mixing bowl.
Serve! Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
