For a more elegant touch, top this hearty soup with cooked shrimp or crabmeat.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sauté onion in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat 8 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and next 4 ingredients; sauté 1 minute. Add pumpkin, 1 cup water, and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; add coconut milk, lime juice, and salt, and simmer, stirring often, 25 minutes. Remove from heat; cool.

Step 2

Process pumpkin mixture, in batches, in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Return pumpkin mixture to Dutch oven, and cook over medium heat until thoroughly heated. Garnish, if desired.

Everyone to whom I have served this loves it. I like a crusty, whole wheat bread with it. A family favorite now.
