Pumpkin Soup


3 cups pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

3 cups low sodium vegetable stock

1 tsp grated fresh ginger

Combine the pumpkin puree and 2 cups of the stock in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the spices, honey and chipotle puree, reduce the heat to medium-low for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Whisk in a little more stock if needed to thin out.

Whisk in the greek yogurt and season with salt and pepper.

Ladle the soup into bowls and drizzle each with some of the Cinnamon Crema.

Garnish with pumpkin seeds and cilantro leaves.
