Curried pumpkin soup


 

The perfect winter soup!  It reflects the autumn leaves and the chill in the air.  High in vitamin C, pumpkin is also a great immune system builder for cold and flu season.

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons butter

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and roughly chopped

1 onion, roughly chopped

2 cups pumpkin or butternut puree

1 tablespoon curry powder

1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

3 cups vegetable stock

½ cup dry white wine

1 ½ cups almond milk

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

2 tablespoon, toasted pumpkin seeds

Method:

In a large pot, add the Earth balance and melt over medium heat.  Add the apples and onion.  Cook until the onion is soft, about 8 minutes.  Add the pumpkin puree, curry, and both sugar, and cook 2 minutes.  Add the stock and wine.  Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.  Then reduce the heat to low, partially cover, and cook about 20 minutes.  Remove from heat and transfer half of the soup to a food processor or blender.  Let it sit 10 minutes to cool.  Keep the remaining soup in the pot and set aside to cool.  Puree the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth.  Pour into a large bowl.  Transfer the remaining soup to the blender or food processor and puree until smooth.  Return all the soup to the pan and cook gently over medium-low heat until heated through.  Pour in the milk and stir until hot.  Add the salt and pepper, to taste.  Garnish with the pumpkin seeds.
