Honey Pumpkin Soup

Honey Pumpkin Soup

- 1 medium-sized pumpkin (about 3-4 pounds), peeled, seeded, and chopped into cubes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
- 2-3 tablespoons Thai Chili Honey
- 1/2 cup coconut milk or heavy cream (optional, for creaminess)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Optional spices: 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and a pinch of cayenne pepper for a bit of heat


1. **Sauté Base Ingredients**: In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onions and sauté until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and sauté for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

2. **Cook Pumpkin**: Add the chopped pumpkin to the pot and stir to mix with the onions and garlic. Sauté for about 5 minutes.

3. **Add Broth**: Pour in the vegetable or chicken broth, ensuring that the pumpkin pieces are submerged. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the pumpkin is tender.

4. **Blend**: Once the pumpkin is soft, use an immersion blender to puree the soup directly in the pot until smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender, you can transfer the mixture to a regular blender in batches, but make sure to let it cool slightly first.

5. **Season**: Stir in the honey, coconut milk (or heavy cream if using), and any additional spices you're using. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow the soup to simmer for another 5 minutes for the flavors to meld.

6. **Serve**: Ladle the soup into bowls, drizzle with a bit more honey or a swirl of coconut milk/cream if desired. You can also sprinkle some roasted pumpkin seeds on top for added crunch and nutrition.


- This soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and reheated on the stove.
- If you want to make the soup more filling, you can add some roasted chickpeas or cooked quinoa to the soup before serving.

This Honey Pumpkin Soup is both nourishing and comforting, perfect for chilly evenings. Enjoy your meal!
