Creamy pumpkin soup



 over 13 years ago

I wuld like to know how to make pumkin soup from ONLY these ingredients:

Canned pumpkin
Possibly water for consistency

Can anyone help? I've had it before at a deli, it tastes a lot like pumpkin pie. They list the ingredients above the soup, so that's how I know what's in it.

1 lg. onion, minced

3 tbsp. butter

4 c. chicken or turkey stock diluted with 2 c. water

3 c. cooked or canned pumpkin

Salt & pepper

Pinch of nutmeg

Orange juice to taste

Saute the onion in the butter until limp. Add the pumpkin and the stock and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes. Put contents of saucepan in blender and puree. It may require doing half at a time. Reheat and season to taste. A splash of cream or half and half will make the soup richer, but not necessary. Will also freeze beautifully.

I've seen pumpkin soup at the Safeway Deli. Never thought to try, but have heard it is a great appetizer. Is it sweet or spicy?
