You are my pumpkin

Sometimes, you get home after 8. It’s dark and has been for the past few hours. Work was stressful, traffic sucked, it’s cold and all those things on your to do list have taken a back seat to the fact that it’s after 8 and you are hungry.  Really hungry. Anything in fridge to reheat? No, of course not, because you didn’t think that far ahead this morning.

Pumpkin to the rescue.

I made this in less than 10 minutes.

Pumpkin Soup

  • 1 can or 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 2 or 3 cups of chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk, cream, or coconut milk (optional, but oh, so delicious)
  • 1 or 2 tsp salt, depending on how salty the broth is
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp thyme

Add it all to a pot and let simmer. Pair with grilled cheese and avocado sandwiches and you have a 10 minute, very comforting meal. IMG_0194
