In a large soup pot combine:
- two flavor packets from Chicken Flavored Ramen Noodles
- two cups of water
- one tablespoon of butter
- one tablespoon brown sugar
- one cup of plain applesauce
- two cups of pumpkin puree
- one half teaspoon of salt
- one teaspoon of cinnamon
- a pinch of garlic powder
- one teaspoon chopped chives
You will also need 1 12 oz can of evaporated milk, but don't add it yet. First bring the ingredients above to a boil, on high heat, stirring constantly.
Reduce the temperature to low, cover the pot, and allow the soup to simmer for 30 minutes.
Stir in the can of evaporated milk.
Despite the cinnamon, and sugar, this soup is savory, and not at all sweet, and it goes wonderfully with the bread sticks, above. All six of my children ate it - which is something, that almost never occurs with a new food.
But, if you're in the mood for something sweet, instead. Then, I suggest you try the Taste of Home, pumpkin square recipe, from Rebecca Writes (click the link to go to the recipe). I made them last night, and they are soooo good, I didn't even bother frosting them, with the suggested cream cheese frosting, for fear I wouldn't be able to stop myself from eating the entire pan.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
