Creamy Pumpkin Soup in Pumpkin


Recipe by: The McDougall Newsletter October 2005 Vol. 4 No. 10
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 6

1/4 cup water
1 small onion, chopped
4 cups vegetable broth
1 16 ounce can solid pack pumpkin
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons curry powder
Several dashes Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup soy or rice milk

Place water and onion in a medium saucepan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until onion is soft. Add broth, pumpkin and applesauce. Stir to combine. Add seasonings. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Stir in milk just before serving.

Hint:
This would be very attractive served in a small baked pumpkin. Cut top off of a pumpkin. Clean out seeds and strings (just like Halloween). Replace top. Place pumpkin in a pan with ½ inch of water. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve the cooked soup in the baked pumpkin.
