  • Pour 1/4 cup of water into a large saucepan and place saucepan over medium heat. Boil the onion for 3 minutes or until tender, taking care to avoid letting all of the water evaporate.

  • Add the remaining water and next four ingredients (pumpkin through nutmeg) to the saucepan. When the water begins to boil, reduce the heat. Allow the mixture to simmer for 5 minutes, then add the milk and continue to cook until the soup becomes hot.

  • Ladle equal portions of the soup into four individual bowls. Top each portion with black pepper and green onions if desired. Serve immediately.
