Spicy Halloween Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Serves 12 hungry ghosts or goblins until the stroke of Midnight...!!!
1 stick unsalted fresh butter
6 cups fresh yellow onions, finely chopped, picked from your vegetable garden
3 15-ounce cans solid pack pumpkin or homemade from your pumpkin patch
DO NOT go into your Pumpkin Patch on Halloween Night...!!! Only if you dare...!!!
See cooking hint noted below
1 cup fresh whole milk (Check Date)
1 cup fresh half and half (Check Date)
3/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
8 cups canned low-salt chicken broth or fresh homemade chicken broth
plain salt or Iodized salt
peppercorns, freshly ground

Before you start this Halloween recipe, please open your pantry and kitchen cupboard doors and check inside for Ghosts or Goblins...!

Ghost Cream Topping for Pumpkin Soup:
1/2 cup fresh sour cream (Check Date)
1/2 cup fresh whipping cream (Check Date)
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice

1 cup shelled green pumpkin seeds, toasted. These are available in a organic food shop or at local Mexican or Hispanic markets. Check the speciality section in your supermarket too.

Whisk the 3 cream topping ingredients in small bowl. Cover and chill 2 hours before serving.

Melt butter in large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until clear, about 15 minutes. Mix in the pumpkin, milk, half and half, and the crushed red pepper. Working in batches, puree the mixture in a food processor. Return back to the pot. Add the chicken broth. Simmer the mixture 15 minutes to blend all the delicious and tasty flavors. Stir occasionally. DO NOT BURN. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Ladle soup into waiting bowls. Spoon ghost cream topping onto soup. Sprinkle with the toasted pumpkin seeds. The pumpkin seeds adds a nice seasonal touch to this smooth, creamy soup.

Serve soup with Halloween pumpkin dinner rolls for a real fall treat. This delicious seasonal soup is perfect for your fall menu, Autumn brunch, dinner party or family Thanksgiving Day dinner.

Cooking Hint:
In some areas, pumpkins do not grow well. Trying using fresh butternut squash, roasted, in place of the pumpkin. Has a nice flavor and works very well. Enjoy...!

Please enjoy this recipe and have a very happy and safe Halloween and Holiday season.

"If a window of opportunity appears,
don't pull down the shade."
