I had originally made this soup for my Christmas Dinner last year. I found the recipe on epicurious.com. I believe the recipe was originally found in "Oprah Magazine" by way of "Simply Recipes" on www.elise.com. My family and I really enjoyed this soup... It's full of flavour and the spice is perfect for a cold evening. I really love this recipe and hope you do too!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (or margarine)
- 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic cloves
- 1/8-1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)
- 3 (15 ounce) cans pumpkin puree (or 6 cups of chopped roasted pumpkin)
- 5 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
- 2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1Melt butter in a 4-quart saucepan over mediium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook, stirring often until softened, about 4 minutes. Add spices and stir for a minute more.
- 2Add pumpkin and 5 cups of chicken broth; blend well. Bring to a boil and reduce heat, simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
- 3Transfer soup, in batches, to a blender or food processor. Cover tightly and blend until smooth. Return soup to saucepan. (I use a hand blender instead to puree the soup right in the pot).
- 4With the soup on low heat, add brown sugar and mix. Slowly add milk while stirring to incorporate. Add cream. Adjust seasonings to taste. If a little too spicy, add more cream to cool it down. You might want to add a teaspoon of salt.
- 5Garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds and/or sour cream (optional).
