Pumpkin soup

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Dietitian’s tip:

Canned pumpkin puree is available all year. When pumpkins are in season, however, you can make your own puree by roasting a small pie pumpkin and processing the flesh in a blender or food processor.

Serves 4

Ingredients 3/4 cup water, divided 1 small onion, chopped 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin puree 2 cups unsalted vegetable broth 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 cup fat-free milk 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 1 green onion top, chopped Directions

In a large saucepan, heat 1/4 cup water over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Don’t let onion dry out.

Add remaining water, pumpkin, broth, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the milk and cook until hot. Don’t boil.

Ladle soup into warmed bowls and garnish with black pepper and green onion tops. Serve immediately.
