Slow Cooker Pumpkin Soup

This slow cooker pumpkin soup is so easy and really delicious.  It's even a two-step slow cooker recipe, which I don't usually do.

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Soup

Crushed garlic
Diced onions (of course I use frozen)
1t salt
1t nutmeg
1/2t of pepper
1 big or 2 small cans of pumpkin
1Q chicken broth
1 c water
1/2 cup of half and half
3/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

In a large pan, saute the garlic and onions in a little olive oil until fragrant.  Add the pumpkin, spices, chicken broth, and water.  Bring to a boil.  After it boils, transfer to the slow cooker.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4.  Five minutes before serving, stir in the half and half and Parmesan cheese.  It's great with a grilled cheese or as an appetizer if you are feeling fancy.  My Heart's Desire likes it, I love it.
