Pumpkin Soup

The unique thing about this pumpkin soup is that it tastes very good and is very low in calories. And because it uses a vegetable stock and no milk, it is a vegetarian as well as a vegan soup.

Ingredients:

1 large onion, minced

2 cups vegetable stock(see the recipe for September 2007)

11/2 cups pureed cooked pumpkin

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp hot-pepper sauce

1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds

Directions:

In a 2-quart saucepan, cook the onions in 2 tablespoons of the stock until limp.

Add the remaining stock, pumpkin, oregano and hot-pepper sauce.

Simmer for 15 minutes.

Serve sprinkled with pumpkin seeds.

Serves 4
