Curried Pumpkin Apple Soup

February 5, 2010

This is a recipe I’ve really wanted for a really long time, it’s one of my grandmother’s from a Canadian Living magazine from the 80’s. She always makes this soup for Thanksgiving, and it’s just, it’s one of my absolute favourite soups ever so I was finally able to get my hands on it, so here it is! My grandmother and I made this together, and it was interesting to finally see how it was made. Don’t worry too much about chopping  up the ingredients too much because it’s going to be pureed.

Curried Pumpkin Apple Soup by Canadian Living
Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 leek (white part only) chopped
  • 1 large cooking apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp curry powder (We used 2 tbsps of hot curry powder and about 2 of hot curry paste… we like it hot)
  • 2 cups chopped fresh pumpkin or 1 can (14 oz/398 mL) pumpkin
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • salt and pepper to taste, apple wedges, or green onion strips

Directions:
1. In a saucepan, heat butter until sizzling. Add garlic, onion, leek and apple; saute until softened.
2. Sift in curry powder and cook for 1 minute. Add pumpkin and stock.
3. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally; reduce heat and simmer for twenty minutes or until vegetables are tender.
4. Transfer to food process or blender; puree until smooth. Return puree to saucepan; stir in cream and simmer for three minutes or until heated through.
5. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve in soup bowls and garnish with apple wedges.

Yield: Six servings.

There are no words for this soup, it’s just… amazing, I could eat bowls of this every day, except if you really wanted to you’d have to put in milk instead of cream, otherwise it’s too fattening! But yeah. This soup is to die for. Just… try it.
