Pumpkin Soup

I love a good soup!  This is one that I made from parts of many recipes that I like.  Take one sugar pumpkin, peal and remove seeds and string insides.  Dice one small onion, carrot, and parsnip, saute in olive oil until soft.  Then add pumpkin cubed and add enough chicken or vegetable stock to cover.  Add bay leaf, pinch of cinnamon, ginger and some fresh grated nutmeg.  Simmer for 30-45 minutes until pumpkin is soft.  Puree in batches in blender or food processor.  Add more stock if needed. 

I served this toasted bread with roasted garlic.  Delicious.
