Inspired by a healthy, low cal recipe from Fitness Magazine, I adapted this recipe using pumpkins and squash from my local farmer's market. —maggie531
jalapeño pepper finely minced
extra virgin olive oil
chicken or vegetable broth
can of solid pack pumpkin or 2 cups fresh roasted pumpkin & squash puree
freshly squeezed lime juice
fresh cilantro finely chopped
maple syrup or honey
Toasted pumpkin seeds for garnish
In This Recipe
In large saucepan over medium high heat, saute jalapeño in hot olive oil until just tender (about one minute). Gently stir in broth, pumpkin and lime juice. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Add cilantro and simmer for five minutes. Stir in maple syrup or honey and garnish with toasted pumbpkin seeds and a sprig of cilantro.
*Note: I roasted a cheese pumpkin to use in the puree and to serve as the soup bowl. Then roasted two miniature pumpkins and two sugar dumpling squash to add to the puree. The two small pumpkins served as the soup cups.
