Yummy Winter Soup

If you stopped by our booth at the Yreka Chamber of Commerce' Night of Lights, you might have tried our yummy soup.  Here is the recipe.  Thanks Kate!

Thai Pumpkin Soup
2 TBL oil
1 onion chopped
1 TBL brown sugar
2-4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small pumpkin, cooked or peeled and chopped into chunks
1 cup water or broth
1 15 oz. can coconut milk
3 TBL hot sweet chili sauce (Mae Ploy)
1 TBL lemon grass, chopped, or 1 TBL grated lemon peel
1 TBL fish sauce (I skip this and just add 1 TBL salt)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (I skipped this too)

Cook the onion with the oil, brown sugar and garlic until soft. Add the pumpkin, water, coconut milk, chili sauce, lemon and fish sauce (if using). Simmer for about 25 minutes. Remove and puree in a blender until smooth. Yum!
