    Makes 2 Servings - recipe doubles or triples easily

    1 t olive oil
    1 t ground cumin
    1/2 t cloves
    1/2 t cinnamon
    1/2 t nutmeg
    1 t ground ginger
    1 t mild chile powder
    1/2- 1 t salt, to taste
    1 T sugar
    1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree (1 1/2 cups)
    1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained (1 1/2 cups)
    2 cups vegetable broth
    4 T shredded fresh cilantro
    2 t fresh lime juice (do not use bottled!)
    zest of 1 lime
    fresh lime wedges - have plenty!


Heat oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add all spices and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add salt, sugar, pumpkin, beans, broth, and 3 T of the cilantro. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 3-5 minutes to meld flavors.

Remove from heat, stir in lime juice and lime zest. Pour soup into a blender and puree until smooth, then return to pot. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.

Ladle soup into bowls over white rice to serve, topping with remaining 1 T cilantro. Serve with additional lime wedges to squeeze into soup (essential for the best flavor).
