Curried Pumpkin Soup


Curried Pumpkin Soup

2 cups baked pumpkin
2 cups water
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 shallots, diced
2 Tbsp garlic paste
1 Tbsp ginger paste
2 Tbsp green curry paste
2 tsp cider vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar
1/3 cup non-fat coffee creamer
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp nutmeg

For this recipe I used fresh pumpkin that was baked in October and had been frozen. You can use canned pumpkin if you like.

Place the water and pumpkin in a blender and blend smooth.

In a large saucepan heat the oil and butter over medium heat. Sauté the shallots, garlic paste, ginger paste and curry paste for 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Bring the soup to a simmer and reduce the heat. Simmer on low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve hot. This soup is spicy on account of the green curry paste we used. My wife added some sour cream to cut down the heat. Alternatively you could produce a less spicy soup using less of the paste and compensating with additional garlic, ginger, and spices of your choosing.

Cheers!

The soup looks delicious. I've never though of adding curry paste to mine but do make something similar by adding cumin,coriander and turmeric to the mix of ingredients.

I love pumpkin anything! I've still got several cans left from the holidays. This sounds like a great way to use one of them.

This is sure to make our soup night rotation... souper (hee hee) flavor combination!

Looking forward to talking more about your Oregon adventure and helping you organize your plan. I've got some ideas brewing (some of which involve microbrew!)
