Pumpkin Soup


Ingredients:

2.4 lb pumpkin, unpeeled weight

1 onion, sliced

2 garlic cloves, peeled whole

3 cups vegetable or chicken broth, low sodium

1 cup water

Salt and pepper

1/2 - 3/4 cup cream or milk

Instructions:

Cut the pumpkin into 2.25" slices. Cut the skin off and scrape seeds out . Cut into chunks.

Place the pumpkin, onion, garlic, broth and water in a pot - liquid won't cover all the pumpkin. Bring to a boil, uncovered, then reduce heat and let simmer rapidly until pumpkin is tender.

Remove from heat and use a stick blender to blend until smooth. If you don't have a stick blender, use a blender

Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir through cream (never boil soup after adding cream, cream will split).

Ladle soup into bowls, drizzle over a bit of cream, sprinkle with pepper and parsley or pumpkin seeds if desired.

Servings: 4 - 6
