#MeatlessMonday - Pumpkin & Green Chili Pepper Soup #vegetarian #crockpot

Our local grocery store has exploded in pumpkin-spice. Pumpkin-spice cookies, cupcakes, coffees, and chocolates. I even saw pumpkin-spice kale chips. *sigh*  I like my veggies as much as any vegetarian, but

This pumpkin-spice blend is a bit different, not sweet but the spicy warm flavors of cumin and chili. It's super-easy and takes a few minutes to set up in the crockpot. Perfect for a busy day.  Enjoy!

Pumpkin-Green Chili Pepper Soup

1 onion, diced
1T olive oil
4 ozs diced green chilies
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 clove garlic, diced
1 tsp ground red pepper
1-15 oz. can pumpkin purée
2-1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup sour cream

Sauté onion in olive oil until translucent and transfer into crockpot. Add pumpkin purée, vegetable broth, green chilies, chopped parsley, cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt, and ground red pepper.
Cook in a crockpot on low/med for about an hour. Blend until smooth.
Stir in sour cream before serving.
