Israeli Pumpkin Soup

This beautifully colored soup was suggested by Sharon Saunders of Jerusalem. It's hearty, but not heavy--a nice prelude to and stimulant for a richly flavored meat or chicken autumn meal. Serve hot to 6-8 people.

Garnish: paprika and minced cilantro leaves

In a large soup pot, saute onion, garlic, and chile pepper in the olive oil on high heat until slightly browned. Cut in the tomatoes and cook down for 3-4 minutes. Add stock. Bring to a boil, add pumpkin, then reduce heat and simmer for about an hour, until all solids are very soft. Puree, solids first, and return to soup pot. If you have leftover chicken, sliver it and toss it into the pot now. When ready to serve, reheat and ladle into bowls. Garnish with a sprinkling of paprika and top with minced cilantro.
