I didn't make the croutons (although they look yummy). Perhaps for a special occasion. Here's my dairy free cream of pumpkin soup:
1 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups homemade chicken broth
1 (15 ounce) can organic pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup coconut milk
Saute onion in coconut oil in a medium saucepan until tender. Add 2 cups of the chicken broth and stir well. Bring mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
Using an immersion blender, process the mixture until smooth.
Return to heat. Add remaining 2 cups of broth, pumpkin, salt, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and ground pepper. Combine until smooth using an immersion blender.
Bring the mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the coconut milk and heat through. Do not boil.
Ladle into individual soup bowls and enjoy!
