    Spiced Pumpkin Soup (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    The time is here for sweaters, scarves, and soups that taste like they've taken all day to make. This earthy spin on pumpkin soup is a real treat. Keep and toast the pumpkin seeds for garnish or snack. In a pinch, canned pumpkin also works well but with the season upon us, there are too many uses for fresh pumpkin to pass them up. I like to roast up a separate one to use for serving. Just remove the top, cutting wide enough to fit a ladle and hollow out the seeds.

    2 medium-sized pumpkins
    2 cups chicken broth
    1 cup water
    1 cup milk
    2 tablespoons honey
    2 fresh bay leaves
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350° F.

    Cut pumpkins in half and scoop out the seeds. Place skin-side down on a baking dish and roast for 40 minutes, until soft. Remove and allow cool just enough to handle.

    Scoop pumpkin flesh into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.

    Pour blended pumpkin into a medium saucepan and add chicken broth, water, honey, cumin, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and add bay leaves. Simmer for 30-40 minutes.

    Remove from heat and discard bay leaves. Stir in milk and serve.
