1/4 C chopped shallots
2 cloves garlic crushed
1/2 t marjoram
1/4 t thyme
3 C chicken broth

1 1/2 C lowfat milk
1/2 C peanut butter

melt butter and add onion,shallots and garlic

Add marjoram, thyme, pumpkin and chicken broth
Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally
reduce heat to low and cook for 15-20 minutes
Remove from heat, stir in milk and peanut butter

It doesn't say to puree it but I do with my hand blender. Its good with half and half instead of milk too.

Very similar to.........

Sweet potato and peanut soup:

Cook one medium chopped onion, 1 tsp brown sugar and 1 tsp salt in 2-3 TBS butter until soft. Add 1/2 tsp coriander, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, and a couple of large cloves of minced garlic, and cook 1 minute more.

Add 3 cups of chicken stock, 2 cups of water and 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin. Stir in 3 TBS of creamy peanut butter.

Simmer until potatoes are tender, 20 minutes or more.

Puree all in blender and return to pot. Stir in 2 TBS of fresh minced cilantro ( I usually cheat and use the kind that comes in a tube)

Check the seasoning and serve.

This will have a little bite so drop the cayenne lower is your family doesn't like spicy soup.

Are there any other squashes that these recipes will work with? I know pumpkin is very distinct.

I have never tried it with other squash. I guess any that has a texture and strong flavor like pumpkin would work..maybe butternut or acorn? Its just so easy to use the can of pumpkin..lol. I also make it with just onions most of the time since I don't always have shallots. its just a simple and fast recipe and does't taste like it is

This thread totally reminds me of an episode of West Wing, where Bartlet is chastising (in absentia) those congressional members who opted to miss a State dinner in order to arrange an emergency session of congress.

He says to Josh, "You know what they're server for the starting course? Pumpkin Soup, Cheese Gnocchi, and a Chevre Brioche."

Josh says, "Were any of those things that you just said...food?"

Meanwhile, I had already been drooling! A rare time when I knew more than Josh!

(Now, tell me that at least a few people know West Wing!)
