Recipe: Spicy Pumpkin Soup (+ cookbook review)

If you are looking for a great fall soup that is super easy to make, this one is it.  This recipe is from the cookbook Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food which is an amazing cookbook!  I borrowed it from the library and loved the recipes I made so much that it's now on my Christmas wish list.  For example, I never even considered making enchiladas myself until I got this cookbook, and the result was so delicious, we will be eating them regularly.  Give this cookbook a try; I don't think you will be disappointed.

My version of the soup recipe is almost identical to the one in the cookbook, with just a couple lazyveg-tweaks.  (I just can't help it.)

1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1 14 oz can lite coconut milk
1 cup vegetable stock (I use Imagine brand low sodium)
3 packets Splenda (or 2-3 Tbsp of your sweetener of choice)
1 tsp red pepper flakes (which is pretty spicy, use less if desired)

Whisk together in a stockpot.  Bring to a low boil.  Lower heat, cover, and simmer for 10 min (or more is fine if you are cooking the rest of dinner).

Makes 2 - 4 servings.

Ooh! I am definitely going to have to make this recipe! I actually process my own pumpkins, but I have found that 3-1/2 cups of fresh pumpkin is the equivalent of one can of pumpkin. Thanks for the recipe! :)

Well, I tried it and it turned out to be real good. I also think that one should use only fresh pumpkin for better taste. One does not really know what they add to cans to preserve the stuff for longer shelf life. And in any case I would say that a vegetarian must use fresh stuff only - the less processed food you use the better it is for your health and that of the environment as well!

I have a question for you: I would love to become vegetarian but I have one problem: I have a hard time finding fruits and vegetables I like (not due to flavor, more due to texture), and I have no idea 1) where to begin or 2) how to make great 'meat tasting' substitutes that aren't meaty.

What are your suggestions?
