Directions

1. Combine onion, garlic, celery, carrots, lentils, and broth or water in a soup pot. Bring to a boil.

2. Lower heat and simmer, covered, 30 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and lentils have turned to mush.

3. Add pumpkin and spices and simmer until all is blended. Consider using a blender or immersion blender if you prefer a smooth soup.

4. Add Tabasco to taste. The Tabasco makes the difference. Consider adding it at the table so the heat can be personalized.
