Add Pumpkin to Turkey Soup

If you are planning on making soup with leftover turkey this Thanksgiving, here's a tip for adding a little extra nutrition for your family. Put into the soup pot 1 cup of plain pumpkin. No one will ever know it's in there. It adds a rich color while supplying immune-boosting nutrients. It also somewhat thickens the broth. I use canned pumpkin, not the pie filling.

Sounds tasty! How much broth do you add a cup of pumpkin to? I'm guessing about 2 quarts, at least?
