Pumpkin Soup!

I love fall, and I love soup.  Soups are great easy ways to get in more veggies for you and your kiddos!  As soon as we can buy pumpkins to cook with we do!  

RECIPE:  Ingredients:  1 baking size pumpkin,  half a chopped onion, 4-5 large carrots peeled and cut, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 can coconut cream (8 ounces), 16 ounces or more of organic chicken broth, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg or more to taste

Cook:  Cut pumpkin in half and scrape out inside.  Put face down on a plate one half and microwave 10 minutes, then repeat with other half.  Then scrape that out. 

While you are doing that, the cook onion and carrot together with butter in a tall pot.  after 5-10 minutes add chicken broth and let simmer about 20 minutes, then add the cooked pumpkin and let simmer 5 minutes.  Using a blender or immersion blender, blend it all up, then add the coconut cream and nutmeg and blend until smooth!
