From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Want just a bowl of delicious fresh soup? Use just one small pumpkin or winter squash for 1 - 2 servings. If needing more servings, this is easy to double or triple! Taste to get it just right before serving.
1 small pumpkin or winter squash, to yield about 1 cup of pulp
Wash the pumpkin or squash. Cook in the microwave 4 minutes. Using a kitchen towel, remove from the oven and allow to cool a few minutes, or until you can comfortably slice in half. Remove the seeds. Place the 2 halves cut side down on a glass or ceramic plate. Cook another 2-3 minutes, or until it is fork tender. Allow to cool. When you can handle it, using a small spoon remove the pulp from the skin. You should get about 1 cup, more or less will work!
