    3 Cups low fat milk.

    Parmesan Cheese & Chopped Basil
    for serving *Optional & not included in Nutritional Information *



Directions

I steam the pumpkin with the skin on then when it has cooled I scoop out the flesh. So there is no peeling! -You need a large stock pot fo this recipe !-
Mash the Pumpkin with the stock or water until you have 12 cups of a thick puree.
Add the dry soup mix and the salt - and add .
Put the pumkin mix on to heat gently.
--
Then make a white sauce
Place Olive Oil and Flour in a small saucepan. Heat on medium heat, stirring all the time with a wire whisk. - When the oil & flour is bubbling, keep stirring for a minute, then remove from heat and add 1 cup of the milk, whisking all the time.
Once the mix is thick & smooth, return it to the heat and add the rest of the milk a small bit at a time, letting the sauce thicken each time.
--
By this time the pumpkin mix will be heated, and the white sauce mix can be added. Stir together and continue to heat until ready.
Serve in Bowls with a sprinkling of Parmesan Cheese and chopped Basil if wanted.

This makes 15 Cups of Soup. It Freezes well and is great to grab a small jar of soup in the morning for lunch at work if you have access to a microwave.
