1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 med. onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. ground curry powder
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
3 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 cup fat-free half-and-half
1 tsp. sugar-stevia sweetener
1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup minced fresh chives


  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic, curry powder, coriander, cayenne, salt, and pepper and sauté for 1 minute.
  2. Add the broth and bring to boiling. Lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
  3. Add the pumpkin and simmer for 10 minutes. Using an immersion blender, process the soup until smooth. Or carefully add the hot soup (in batches) to a blender and process until smooth; return the soup to the pot.
  4. Add the half-and-half and sugar-stevia sweetener and simmer on low for 2 minutes. Ladle into individual serving bowls. Garnish each bowl with generous pinches of pumpkin seeds and chives.
