1/4 cup butter
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, diced
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup water
1 (29 oz) can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie)
1/8 teaspoon cinnamonThis is a thin but sublime soup and perfect for family gatherings at Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Melt butter. Add onion, garlic and sugar. Sauté low until soft. Add broth, water and salt and pepper. Bring to boil. Add pumpkin and simmer on low for 15 minutes. Add milk and cinnamon and heat through.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired.
Substitutes: Use heavy whipping cream instead of evaporated milk for a heavier, richer flavor. Use dry sherry instead of cinnamon. Experiment!!!
