Yield: 2 to 6 servings -- depending on level of greediness
Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the pumpkin, carrots, onion and cumin. Saute 5 minutes, stirring.
Add flour and cook 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in chicken broth, salt, and hot sauce. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce, and simmer about 25 minutes.
Cool, puree in food processor, and return to pot. Heat well and adjust seasonings. Serve with fresh, or dried parsley, as a garnish.
I like to double or triple the amount of cumin and hot sauce in the recipe.
