Pumpkin Soup

My sister-in-law gave me a wonderful pumpkin soup recipe. I made it tonight and yummy is it good! It is like a pumpkin chowder with onions and garlic. So delicious! If anyone is looking for something new to eat this fall and wants a warm soup that is perfect for fall, give this a try.

Pumpkin Soup
3 Cups Chicken Stock
1/2 stick butter
1/2 pint of wipping cream
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp parsley
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 tsp thyme
1 apple chopped
1/2 tsp salt
3- 3 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
pepper to taste
1 minced garlic clove

Saute' onions, chopped onion, celery, garlic and apple in 1/2 stick of butter until soft. Take and blend in food processor or blender until a little smaller, but not pureed. Mix chicken stock, wipping cream and pumpkin puree in pot with spices. Heat on medium high until nice and hot, stir often so it won't burn on the bottom. Serve with any other fall foods, corn bread or biscuits would be really good. Enjoy!

Woah crazy! That sounds so weird but oddly inviting! I'll definitely have to give that one a try...

Oh hey! I made this soup last night and it was actually really good! I didn't have apples though so I added 4 T of sugar and 1/2 t of cinnamon. Plus, to cut fat I subbed 1/2 and 1/2 for the whipping cream. It was great!!!
