Curry Pumkin Soup

I never thought much about it but after pouring over pumpkin recipes for this month's Chit-Chat I realized... I really like pumpkins! Pumpkin cheesecake, soup, muffins, empanadas, and of course pies.

• 1/3 cp chopped onion
• 1 tsp minced garlic
• 1 tsp curry powder
• 1 bay leaf
• 2 tbsp butter
• 1 cp pureed pumpkin or 1/2 can of pumpkin
• 1/4 tsp nutmeg
• 1/8 tsp sugar
• 2 cps chicken broth
• 1 1/2 cps milk
• 1 tbsp cornstarch
• 2 tbsp heavy cream

In large pan cook chopped onion, garlic, and curry in the butter for a few minutes until onion is tender. Add pumpkin, nutmeg, sugar and the bay leaf. Stir in the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for about 15 minutes. Take out the bay leaf. Stir in 1 cup of milk and cook over low heat for a few minutes. In another bowl, stir together the remaining milk and the cornstarch until dissolved and add to the pan. Cook until slight bubbly and mixture is thickened. Let simmer an additional 3 minutes on low heat.

Serve with cream swirled on top and sprinkled with chives.
