Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 can (15 ounces) unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons non calorie sweetener (I used Truvia)
  • 1 **chai-flavored tea bag
  • 1/4 cup fat free half and half
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Ideal slow cooker size: 2-Quart.
  • Place the onion, garlic and oil in a small bowl and microwave, stirring occasionally until the onion is softened, about 3 minutes.
  • Scrape the onion mixture into your slow cooker.
  • Add the broth, pumpkin puree, sweetener and tea bag to the slow cooker and stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook until the flavors meld, about 4 to 5 hours on LOW.
  • Remove the tea bag.
  • Carefully, puree small batches of the soup in your blender, until smooth. Be sure to fill the blender not more than two-thirds full and hold the cover of your blender in place with a folded dish towel to prevent it from exploding and burning you with hot soup! Pulse quickly a few times before blending continuously.
  • Return the pureed chai crock pot pumpkin soup to your slow cooker. Stir in the half and half and let it sit until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  • If the soup seems too thick, add a little more broth to thin it to desired consistence.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Recipe Notes

**Use 1/4 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves and ground cardamom for the chai teabag if desired.
