Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • dash cayenne
  • 3 cups pumpkin puree
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
  • 1 cup milk

  • 1/4 cup cream
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Directions
  2. Melt butter in soup pot over medium high heat
  3. Add onion and cook until translucent
  4. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes
  5. Add the next four spices, cook one minute
  6. Add pumpkin and broth, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes
  7. Remove from heat and puree, I used an immersion blender
  8. Add milk, brown sugar, and cream over medium heat, stirring until combined and sugar has dissolved
  9. Adjust seasonings as needed. I make my broth with bouillon cubes, so mine needed very little salt, but I did give it a generous grind of black pepper
