Serves 8

4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 medium yellow onions, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
3-15 oz cans of pure pumpkin (don’t use pumpkin pie mix because it has pie spices in it) Or you can use 6 cups of peeled, chopped roasted pumpkin
5 cups chicken broth
2 cups of milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream

Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook, until they are softened. Add spices and stir for a minute more.

Add pumpkin and 5 cups of chicken broth and mix well. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Put soup in small batches in a blender or food processor. Cover tightly and blend until smooth. Return the blended soup to a pan.

With the soup on low heat, add the brown sugar and mix. Slowly add the milk while stir until it is well mixed. Add cream. Adjust the seasonings to taste. If it is too spicy add a little more cream to col it down. You might want to add some salt.

I love this soup and freeze it in individual servings since Rick doesn’t care for pureed soup. It is especially simple if you use canned pumpkin.
