A Not-Pie, Not-Latte Way to Enjoy Pumpkin
The carvable winter squash isn't just meant for cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Pumpkin, which is buttery and earthy-tasting, is also a natural for more sophisticated spices, such as cumin, coriander and cardamom. Toss cubes of the vegetable into the slow cooker along with onion, garlic, ginger, spices, some vegetable stock and a can of unsweetened coconut milk. In just two or three hours, you'll have a thick, creamy soup that combines sugar and spice.
