My 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.

On those cold and snugly evenings there is nothing better than some hot pumpkin soup. I love cream soups and this recipe is one of my all time favorites. I am such a "puddle" when it comes to a bowl of hot pumpkin soup and a nice "BIG" mug of hot cocoa with mini marshmallows! Some parts of our childhood never change.....

Thanks for the recipe. I've never had pumpkin soup, but have been wanting to try it. It's cold here now, so I think this would be great. Can you use canned pumpkin or is it better if you cook your own?
