This recipe was found in The Chicago Tribune. My DH loved it, I'm not a fan of pumpkin. I had some left over brats I sliced and threw in, also I used 1/4 blood orange juice since I forgot to buy oranges and used non fat milk

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high, combine 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and half of the onions.Saute until onions are very soft and lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the maple syrup and ginger, then reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking, stirring often, until the onions are thick and caramelized, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven over medium-high, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the remaining onion, the curry powder, red pepper flakes and the apple. Saute until the onion is tender,about 5 minutes.

  5. Return the soup to the pot and return to a gentle simmer. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls, then top each serving with 2 crackers or pieces of toast. Arrange some of the caramelized onions over the crackers or toast.
