Absolutely fantastic soup!
New Zealand Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Soup with Sweet Potato Matzo Balls

2 1/2 C chopped red onion
3 T veg oil
1 12 lbs sweet pumpkin or butternut squash (tastier w pumpkin), peeled and halved, seeded & strings removed, flesh cut into 1" pieces
1 lb sweet potato, peeled & cut into 1" pieces
7-8 C chicken broth

Matzo balls (be sure to freeze bf making, or make regular matzo balls with sauted shallots & red onions added)
1 lb sweet potato
1 large egg, beaten lightly
freshly grated nutmeg to taste
1/2 - 3/4 c matzo meal

Minced red onion or pomegranate seeds for garnish

Make the soup: In a kettle cook the chopped onion in the oil over moderate heat, stirring, until pale golden. Transfer 2 T to a small bowl, reserving for matzo balls. To the remaining onion add the pumpkin and the sweet potato and cook the mixture, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add 7 C of the broth and simmer mixture, partially covered, for 30 minutes, or until vegetables are very tender. 

In a food processor or blender puree the soup in batches until smooth, transferring as it is pureed into a bowl. Return to kettle, season with salt & pepper. Think the soup, if desired, with some of the remaining 1 C of broth and reserve it.

Make the matzo balls: Preheat the oven to 375. Prick sweet potato with a fork and bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until tender. Let the sweet potato cool, peel it, and force it and the reserved tablespoons of cooked onion through a ricer or food mill with medium disk into a bowl. Stir in the egg, nutmeg, and salt & pepper to taste. Add 1/2 C matzo meal, or enough to form a soft dough and chill (freeze) covered for at least an hour or overnight. Form the dough into 16 balls onto a wax-paper lined plate. Drop into a kettle of lightly salted rapidly boiling water and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until light & fluffy. Makes 16 matzo balls.

Alternately, make matzo ball mix according to box instructions, and add sauteed shallots & red onions to mix before chilling.

While matzo balls are cooking, heat the reserved soup until it is hot. Transfer the matzo balls with a slotted spoon to heated bowls, ladle the soup over them, and garnish each serving with minced onion or pomegranate seeds. Makes about 8 C or 8 servings. (Definitely prefer the brightness of the pomegranate seeds.)
