This spicy pumpkin soup is a good way to use up all of that pumpkin left over from Halloween.
|Directions||Cut the top off the pumpkin, scoop out the seeds and strings, peel the shell, and dice the flesh.
Sauté the pumpkin, leek, and potatoes in olive oil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Cover and boil the soup for 15 minutes, until potatoes are soft.
Purée the soup and add spices and lemon juice. Ladle into bowls, top with optional sour cream or crème fraîche, and serve.
|Notes||You can use leftover jack-o’-lanterns, but the soup will taste noticeably better if made with smaller, more flavorful pumpkins.
Wondering what to do with the seeds? Roast ‘em!
