Pumpkin Soup

Submitted by: REDOONAGH

Introduction

Great for Thanks Giving, Halloween, or anytime! Great for Thanks Giving, Halloween, or anytime!
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 Tbsp Olive Oil (or oil of your choosing)
    1/2 Cup Onion, Chopped
    2-3 Stalks Celery, Chopped
    2-3 Carrots, Peeled and Chopped
    3/4 Cup Fresh Mushrooms, Chopped
    2 Cups Canned Pumpkin (or you can use fresh pumpkin that is cooked and mashed)
    2 Cups Vegetable Broth (I use low sodium)
    2 Cups Milk (I use 1% but you can use your choice, even 1/2 cream if you desire)
    1/2 Cup Orange Juice
    Salt to taste (I do not use to make it low salt diet approved)

    Garnish (not calculated in nutrition totals):
    1 TBSP sour cream
    2-3 Dashes Hot Sauce (Optional)
    Chives, chopped
    Orange peel (Optional, but pretty)

Directions

Saute vegetables in oil for about 5 minutes. Add sauted vegetables to broth, add pumpkin as well: simmer for 10 minutes. Add milk, orange juice simmer for 10 more minutes (this is when you would salt to taste).

Serve Hot. Garnish each bowl with 1 Tbsp Sour Cream and 2-3 dashes Pepper Sauce, or substitute Chives and Orange Peel for the hot sauce, makes a less spicy version. You could just use the sour cream (that is how my niece likes it)... or dream up your own!

Makes about 8 1-Cup servings

Number of Servings: 8

    I think something is wrong with the way your recipe has been calculated. When you click on the breakdown of nutrients it says each serving has 1.5 tbsp of olive accounting for 179 calories just in olive oil. When I added all the ingredients I got about 105 calories per serving. - 10/26/10
