WW Core Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Serves 4

1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 can (29 ounces) pumpkin (puree, NOT pie filling)
2 cups canned low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth (or homemade)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 1/2 cups 1% milk (or use plain soy milk)

In a medium saucepan over a medium high heat, saute onion in olive
oil till translucent--about 3 minutes. Turn down the heat to medium
and add spices and stir for another minute. Add pumpkin puree
(remember--don't use pumpkin pie filling!) and broth. Simmer for 5
minutes. Now add milk and heat for another 5 minutes (don't let it
boil again or it will separate).

Serve with some cornbread and a big green salad.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
