Here is a great recipe for pumpkin or any winter squash soup. I know this is out of season but want it in the recipe section of the blog. Besides I still have many bags of pumpkin puree in my freezer I need to use up from my giant pumpkin, Hercules from last year!
JANNINE’S PUMPKIN SOUP
About 10 lbs of pumpkin or winter squash
Chicken broth or vegetable broth or water
1 can Coconut milk (whole or lite)
fresh grated ginger
honey to taste
Cut, quarter and clean out your squash of seeds and stringy stuff. Put oil on exposed edges and put face down on foil lined cookie sheet and place foil on top so it doesn’t dry out. Cook at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes until soft when pierced by fork. Scoop out and place in a big soup pot and add 8-10 cups of either water, OR chicken broth OR vegetable broth-your preference. Then take a mixer or one of those hand held blender wands and mix till smooth. Heat and add the can of coconut milk, some fresh grated ginger (peel first) and honey to taste. Do not boil. Yummy!
