This delicious Chilled Pumpkin Soup recipe gets its inspiration from a winter squash soup that is popular throughout Latin America, traditionally prepared with the native calabaza or West Indian pumpkin. In Argentina, this dish is enjoyed in Salta, a northwest region rich in ancient culture. Savor this cold soup during the summer when it will be a refreshing addition to many meals.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 5 green onions, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes with liquid or 3 fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz. each) chicken broth
  • 1 can (15 oz.) LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • NESTLÉ Media Crema (optional)
  • Paprika (optional)

Directions

HEAT oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and green onions; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes or until tender. Add tomatoes; cook for an additional minute.

ADD broth and pumpkin; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in evaporated milk, salt and pepper. Remove soup from heat; cool for 15 minutes. Carefully transfer mixture to blender or food processor (in batches, if necessary); cover. Blend until smooth.

POUR soup into large bowl; cover. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Spoon into bowls. Top each with a dollop of Media Crema and sprinkle of paprika, if desired.
