Thought I'd share this "recipe" (I'm not one to write things down or keep track of quantities so bear with me).<br><br>
I made it for a party this weekend and everyone went nuts about it. It's a recipe that started as a chicken broth, cream-based pumpkin soup that we got from a friend a few years ago and it has been evolving ever since.<br><br>
While it's quick and easy to make...the key is to make it ahead (like the day before ideally) and let all the flavors blend.<br><br>
2 cans pumpkin<br>
Fresh pumpkin or butternut squash "meat" - peeled and steamed (adding fresh pumpkin/squash is optional but I think it makes it even better)<br>
4-6 cups of vegetable broth (I usually start with around four and then add more water/broth as needed)<br>
About 1/2 to 1 tablespon of curry (to taste)<br>
A pinch of cinnamon<br>
About a tablespoon of maple syrup and/or honey (to taste)<br><br>
Add all the ingredients to a pot and let simmer for at least an hour or so (more if you can) - stirring often and checking the consistency...if too watery cook uncovered for a while. If too thick...add a little water/broth and cook covered for a while.<br><br>
If you use fresh pumpkin/squash then you need to puree the soup (in a blender or using a hand blender) before serving. I like to chill it overnight in the fridge and then heat it up to serve the next day.<br><br>
Other things I've added to the soup are:<br><br>
Apple cider<br>
Steamed and peeled apples<br>
Nutmeg<br><br>
ALWAYS delicious and always a big hit when I make it for fall parties.<br><br>
You can even serve it in a hollowed out pumpkin!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Hope you like it!<br><br>
