This is another soup that Katniss talks about in Chapter 6 of Catching Fire... "a creamy pumpkin brew sprinkled with slivered nuts and tiny black seeds." It's really amazing, and since it uses canned pumpkin, it can be made year-round... but it's perfect to enjoy in chilly weather!


3 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups of chopped carrots
5 to 6 cups chicken or vegetable broth (adjust as needed for desired consistency of soup)
2 cans of pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 cup half and half
pumpkin pie spice (or any combination of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and ground ginger)
salt and pepper to taste
optional garnish: black sesame seeds and slivered almonds

This is an original recipe by Jill.
