Description:

Slow Cooker or Stove-top.  Sounds like an odd combination but it's SO good!!  Creamy pumpkin, black beans, turkey kielbasa or smoked chicken sausage, carrots, onions, a touch of cumin and diced tomatoes are simmered together for a hearty and delicious soup that the whole family can enjoy.  Definitely a main dish soup.

 

Cooking Instructions

Thaw. Stove-top: Heat a medium sized stock-pot over med/high heat. Pour bag of onions/carrots into pot.  Saute for 8 min, stirring, until onions are translucent.  Add bag of beans/pumpkin.  Add 2 1/2 Cup water for a half serve, 5 cups water for a full serve.
