Prep Time: Under 30 min

• 1 cup Pumpkin or Butternut Squash puree or both (Recipe follows)
• 1 Medium Yam or Sweet Potato
• 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
• 1 tbsp butter
• about 1-2 cups vegetable stock or water  – For a creamy soup you can substitute ½ of the stock with cream
• salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
• 1 tsp Curry powder
• 1 tsp chopped Ginger
• Chives for garnish


1.  Chop the sweet potatoes roughly and steam them until soft.
2.  Blend into smooth puree.
3.  Melt Butter under low heat in sauce pot and sauté the ginger.
4.  Stir in the pureed pumpkin, sweet potatoes and peanut butter.
5.  Add the stock, water & seasoning and stir till well blended.
6.  Cook on low heat for an additional 10 minutes.
7.  You can garnish with chopped chives and sour cream

Easy Pumpkin Puree

1. Select 1 or 2 pumpkins depending on their size and how much puree you would like to make.
2. Cut the pumpkins in half and remove seeds and membranes.
3. Cut the pumpkin halves into quarters
Place these upside down on a sheet pan & bake in a preheated 400F oven for about 30 minutes

• Butternut squash will take about 45 minuets to 1 hour. Push the skin to check for doneness.  It should be semi-soft
• The outer skin will turn deep orange color.  Let the pieces cool enough so you can handle them.
• Tear the skin off of the flesh – it will come off very easily if the pieces are baked properly.
• Put the flesh into a food processor if you would like a smooth consistency.

• You may have to add a small amount of water if it is too thick
• For an even smooth consistency you can run the puree through a strainer[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1456786746505{background-color: #bcd6d1 !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1456788149114{padding-top: 15px !important;padding-right: 25px !important;padding-left: 25px !important;}”]
