Pumpkin crazy I am and as promised a new pumpkin recipe!

I will admit it, I love pumpkin.  I love the taste, texture and how it smells while cooking and I wait for pumpkin season like a child waits for Christmas.  Pumpkin season doesn’t last very long and I wanted to get as much as I could out of it and that is how I came up with my new recipe.  I wanted something I could eat any time of day, something to replace maybe cereal in a mug.  Pumpkin soup, creamy, full of flavor and yet not to sweet.

I give you my Paleo Cream of Pumpkin soup.

Ingredients

1 Sugar Pie pumpkin (baked)

32 ounces of vegetable broth

1 tsp Pink Himalayan sea salt

1 can Trader Joe’s Light Coconut milk ( you can use full fat)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp Nutmeg

1/2 cup Grade B Maple Syrup

Place cut cooked pumpkin and vegetable broth into Dutch oven or other large soup pan turn heat on high, add spices and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes or until pumpkin starts falling apart.  Let cool about 20 minutes.   Use a stick blender to puree mixture and slowly add coconut milk and Maple syrup.  You can puree in a blender, just make sure to do it a little at a time or cool longer so the hot mixture does not expand in the blender. and spill over.  Serve hot as a side or dessert.  Top with a swirl of coconut milk, a little more cinnamon, pecans and maple syrup.
