My husband does not like my Pumpkin Soup. I really think it’s because it doesn’t have any meat in it. And it’s orange.
However, women love it! Go figure.
So, I have decided this Pumpkin Soup is my friendship soup. I make it to share with girl friends. Those times when it’s just the girls. When we sit and chat. Sometimes it’s just fun and laughter. Sometimes it’s deeper soul talk. But it’s always good. The talk. And the Soup.
I’m sharing the recipe with you today. I’m also giving you a little nudge. Get the ingredients. Make the soup. Invite a friend or two to lunch. Eat. Laugh. Chat about your day. Talk about the things of God. Enjoy.
2 TBL butter
½ cup chopped onion
2 cup chicken stock
1 large potato, peeled and diced
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
1/8 tsp thyme
14 oz canned pumpkin
2 cup milk
Cayenne pepper to taste
Saute onion in butter in large saucepan until clear and soft, but not brown. Add chicken stock, potato, salt, pepper and thyme. Bring to a boil. Simmer gently to cook potato. Cool a bit, then run mixture through a blender or food process to smooth. Return to saucepan. Stir in pumpkin and milk. Heat through. Season with cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper to taste. Thin with additional milk if necessary. Makes about 6 cups.
I would love to hear how it turns out. The soup and the soul talk!
