Pumpkins are the official herald of fall’s arrival, even in Texas where we wear shorts to the pumpkin patch.:) If you love pumpkin pie but don’t want the hassle of making one from scratch, here’s a very easy recipe that is guaranteed to satisfy.
Pumpkin Pie Porridge
- When the pumpkin is mushy to the touch, slice it in half and scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff. Set seeds aside if you wish to make crispy pumpkin seeds.
- Using a paring knife or other sharp knife, peel skin off the pumpkin and then chop into pieces
- Place pumpkin pieces into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth, adding some of the milk if necessary to thin it out enough to blend.
- Blend until smooth. This soup can be served chilled or gently warmed (taking care not to heat too much and thereby kill the valuable enzymes in the raw cream/milk).
