Curried Pumpkin Soup

It is starting to feel like fall here(FINALLY!!!), and I can't get enough fall food. Here is one that I love, obviously if you don't love curry or pumpkin this is not the soup for you. It is pretty healthy, although it takes a little more time than I normally like. So make it earlier in the day and then warm it up for dinner. Serve it with some naan, it's so good!

1 lg sweet onion

1 T olive oil

1 T minced garlic

1 T minced fresh ginger

1 T curry powder

1/8 tsp ground red pepper

1/8 tsp ground cumin

2 (15 oz) cans unsweetened pumpkin

1 c water

1 (32 oz) container low sodium fat free chicken broth

1 (13.5 oz) lite coconut milk

2 T lime juice

2 1/2 tsp salt

Saute onion in hot oil in a dutch oven over med-high heat 8 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and next 4 ingredients; saute 1 minute. Add pumpkin, 1 cup water, and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to med. Add coconut milk, lim juice, and salt, and simmer, stirring often, 25 minutes. remove from heat; cool. Process pumpkin mixture in batches, in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Return pumpkin mixture to dutch oven, and cook over med. heat until thoroughly heated. Garnish with sour cream.

Mmmm, that sounds like a good one. I've had a really good pumpkin soup with curry, but it didn't have lime juice or coconut milk and those things can only make it better right?
