I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago when I was experimenting with fresh pumpkin. I was not sure how it would be with chunks of pumpkin but I have to say it was amazing! It was bursting with flavor and the flavors went well. I did use coconut milk in place of milk and I think I may have added some fresh ground ginger and some cilantro on top with cheddar.

This was delicious. I was lazy and used 1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree. I kept the broccoli amount the same, but added 5 cups of broth and skipped the milk. I wanted to stretch it, and I came out with 6 generous and still thick servings. The taste was SO good. I'd like to try adding parmesan to my bowl too.
