     Dr. G has an amazing pumpkin soup recipe that is not on her recipe website (the "You are what you eat" site) so I am going to add it because the asparagus makes it better than any pumpkin soup I have ever had!

     Hemp Pumpkin Soup

1 pumpkin peeled, deseeded and cut into 3-4 inch pieces
1 bunch of asparagus roughly chopped (save tips for a salad)
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3-4 inch pieces
3 carrots
1-2 onions depending on what you can stand (I reduced the amount, she used 6)
1 veggies stock cube
1 garlic clove minced
2 tbsp crushed coriander seed, coriander powder or fresh chopped coriander
2 tbsp hemp and pumpkin seeds

Bring a large pan with 1 liter water to boil, then add pumpkin, asparagus, sweet potato, carrot, onion and stock cube, and garlic (and coriander if not fresh). Bring back to boil, then lower heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes til veggies are tender when pierced with a knife. Remove from heat and add fresh coriander. Cool slightly and blend til desired consistency. Reheat gently if desired, and serve in warmed bowls with seeds to garnish. Also, if you only have a small pumpkin, some butternut squash and sweet potato substitute nicely!
