2 chopped onions
1 Tablespoon chopped chives
2 chicken bouillon cubes

2.2 pounds of pumpkin or 1 large butternut squash
(Raw pumpkin needs to be peeled and chopped or you can prepare your pumpkin according to the instructions at the top of this page)

Saute the butter and onion in a saucepan and cook them until the onions are transparent.

Add the cumin and nutmeg and saute the mixture for another 2 minutes.

Add the bouillon, mushroom soup, water, and pumpkin (squash).

Simmer the soup for 5 minutes if you?re using cooked pumpkin. Simmer the soup for 15 minutes (or until the pumpkin is tender) if you?re using raw pumpkin.

Puree the soup in a blender and reheat before serving.
