I was inspired by this chap, and made a few changes to the above, for an AWESOME recipe.
15oz can pumpkin puree
1/2 red onion chopped
2 big tomatoes chopped
1/2 cup celery chopped
2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp grated garlic (2 cloves)
1/2 tsp jeera (cumin)
1/2 tsp ajjwain (nigella seeds??)
1 cup skim milk
2 slices toasted whole wheat bread de-crusted
1/4 tsp ghee/butter
1/4 bell pepper (green/red)
The recipe's easy. Oil in the pan, throw in the seeds, add all the veggies (onion first - saute until browned), saute the rest of the veggies for 5 mins, add pumpkin puree, milk and mix well and wait until it comes to a gentle boil. Turn off and puree. For the kiddo, I made the croutons by shallow frying the squares of bread with a litte ghee (or olive oil) added to both sides. Cut into squares after frying it. My 7 year old did this task with great relish. Serve with salt and pepper.
