A Soup That Tastes As Lively As It Looks
Laced with cumin, coriander and cardamom, this buttery-tasting pumpkin soup is a warm and spicy dish to curl up with when the wind chill's below zero. The winter squash holds up surprisingly well in the slow cooker; in fact, after hours in the pot, its deep orange color becomes even more intense. The finished dish is a thick, creamy soup that combines sugar and spice.
