Pumpkin Soup

This is another one of my aunt's recipes that is just HEAVENLY. It may sound a little strange, but trust me. It's good! Next time, I'll take a picture.

2 medium white onions

1 medium potato

1/4 lb butter

48 1/2 oz chicken broth

2 tbsp chicken base

1 cup cream

1 9 oz can pumpkin

1 tsp. cocoa

1/2 cup frozen orange juice

1/2 tsp white pepper

peel and chop onion and potato and sauté in butter

put in blender with a little chicken broth

return to skillet and add chicken base and 1/2 cup cream

put in stock pot and add remainder of chicken broth, pumpkin, cocoa, orange juice and cream

top with green onion and toasted pumpkin seeds
