Pumpkin or Squash Soup, Easy (P, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 8

1 leek, cleaned and sliced, white part only
2 tablespoons canola or olive oil
1 lb. pumpkin or 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and diced small
1 to 2 bouillon cubes
6 to 8 cups water

Fry the leek in the oil until translucent. Add the pumpkin and toss for a minute or two. Add water. Bring to a boil. Add bouillon cube(s) and cumin. Reduce flame and boil until the pumpkin is soft.

Remove from the flame. Using stick blender, blend until almost all the vegetables disappear. I like to leave some pieces floating in the soup.

Some people add a diced, peeled apple to the ingredients for even a sweeter taste.

Serve with pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds. You can also add a swirl of cream if serving dairy or pareve cream if desired.
