Spiced Pumpkin Soup (Gluten-Free)

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.

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.

It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge. Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chas...

I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed ce...

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...
