  • Stir in pumpkin, broth, pepper and, if desired, cloves. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, or until pumpkin is tender. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

  • Transfer half of the pumpkin mixture to a blender or food processor; cover and blend or process until smooth. Repeat with the remaining half of the pumpkin mixture. (Or use an immersion blender directly in the saucepan.) Return all of the pureed mixture to saucepan.

  • Stir in the soymilk and enough of the water to reach desired consistency; heat through, but do not boil. Stir in sugar (or sugar substitute) to taste. Serve warm. If desired, garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds or pine nuts.
