Pumpkin's anti-diabetic, anti-cancer, immunity-boosting and weight loss promoting properties make this vegetable a nutritional powerhouse and Asian food-as-medicine favorite. Be sure to save the seeds to roast as a salty, crunchy snack, packed with tons of healing essence!
Combine the first six ingredients in a saucepan and bring to boil.
Reduce heat and let simmer until pumpkin is tender. (For a lighter soup, omit onions and add more pumpkin).
Remove from heat and use a stick blender to blend until smooth. If you don't have a stick blender, use a blender and puree in small batches.
Add cooking wine and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add more mushroom seasoning if needed.
