If you love pumpkin, and you love a dish with Heat, I am sure you will love this dish! 

Sometimes pictures are worth a thousand words, right? So I will not be writing up story to go along with this dish. :-)

  • 2 Tablespoons of butter
  • 1 cup of chopped onion
  • 1 15 ounce can of pumpkin (or you can use fresh pureed if you have it on hand)
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced ( your choice, I am sure that sweet potatoes would go well in this dish. we used yukon gold, however next time I will try this recipe with the sweet!)
  • 4 cups of chicken broth ( fresh homemade)
  • 1/2 cup of Organic Heavy whipping cream ( or your choice of dairy substitute)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Cayenne pepper
  • salt/ and pepper
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of chopped dry parsley

Melt butter in a french oven. Add onion and saute for a two minutes. Add Pumpkin, and potato, cream and chicken broth/ Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat. Cook until potatoes are soft. Add spices, and salt and pepper. Transfer into a bowl, and puree soup. 

Serve and enjoy!
