Pumpkin Soup Recipe
With pumpkins now in season, Halloween and Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought I would post a simple pumpkin soup recipe that everyone could enjoy. Especially on these colder nights that are approaching or already here for some of us.
Simple Pumpkin Soup
1/2 cup onion
3 tbsp. butter
2 cups mashed cooked pumpkin
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup half and half or fat free half and half.
Chop the onions and gently brown with butter in a pan. Put mashed pumpkin
with onions in pan. Add the salt, sugar, nutmeg and pepper. Slowly add chicken
broth and heat thoroughly, but do not boil. To serve, pour into a tureen and
add the cream. Makes 4 to 6 small servings.
