  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 4 garlic cloves

Directions

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan on a low heat. Stir in the onions, 2/3rds of the leek and garlic; sweat, covered, until transparent.
  • Stir in the Sue Bee® honey, spices and pumpkin; cover and let sweat together for another couple minutes.
  • Pour in the stock, raise the heat and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat, cover, and let simmer for 30-40 minutes, until the pumpkin is soft.
