Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Warm, lusciously creamy, sweet and laced with spices, pumpkin soup tastes like pumpkin pie – without the huge calorie count or nearly as much work! Ready in about 15 minutes. I used cooked pureed pumpkin I made previously and froze leftover, canned pumpkin turns out more orange. Fresh pumpkins are dirt cheap in the fall and early winter, so I buy several, cook them and freeze leftovers to cook with later. High in fiber, very nutritious, cheap and yummy!

Ingredients

2 c
pumpkin, cooked and mashed, or canned
1/4 c
brown sugar
1/8 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
maple syrup (optional)
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
ginger
1 dash(es)
cloves
milk, as needed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine all ingredients in a heavy pot.
2
Add milk 1/4 cup at a time until it reaches a nice creamy soup consistency - different batches of pumpkin have different moisture content, so there isn't a set measurement of milk needed.
3
Heat over low or medium low until heated through.
4
Serve warm. Great with a couple graham crackers, or topped with a small scoop of ice cream or frozen cool whip on top.
