I was just reminded today of a wonderful way to get recipes and whole menus sent to you for very cheap, and last I knew they had a low carb option. Saving Dinner is just wonderful! Every week you get an email with your meal plan and grocery list all in one! I highly recommend this website. They even have some of the best holiday recipes, no matter what your restrictions.

Smashing Pumpkin Soup (from Saving Dinner by Leanne Ely—Ballantine)
Serves 6
1 onion -- chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups pumpkin puree (sometimes called 100% pumpkin)
3/4 cup green onions -- chopped
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
2 cups milk
salt and pepper -- to taste

In a soup pot, heat oil over medium high heat and saute onions. Cook till very soft and add remaining ingredients, except milk. Cook uncovered for 15 minutes. Add milk and continue to cook (but not boil--it will break) for another 5 minutes.
