Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Prep: 5 minutes Cook: 10 minutes

Serves:6

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 16 oz. can solid pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • several dashes Tabasco Sauce
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk

Directions

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 non-dairy 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 1/2 inch of water. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve the cooked soup in the baked pumpkin.
