Pumpkin Curry Soup

This Pumpkin Curry Soup has been a winter favorite of ours and went great with lighter red wines at our most recent Holiday Open House & wine tasting at The Boulevard Market!! 30 minutes is all you need to make this soup! It can also easily be vegan by replacing the heavy cream with coconut milk (sold in cans at the grocery store, unsweetened)and olive oil. I garnish it with crushed amaretti cookies or crumbled Maytag Blue depending on if you're feeling sweet or salty! Enjoy!


1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon fresh Madras Curry powder
1/2 cup onions, chopped
2 cups pumpkin or squash puree
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup heavy cream or coconut milk

In a large pot over medium-low heat, combine butter and olive oil and saute onions until soft but not browned. When onions are soft, add curry powder and saute 1 minute to release spices. Add stock & pumpkin puree and bring to a simmer. Cover pot and simmer 15 minutes. Add heavy cream and simmer until soup has thickened. (You may add more or less stock depending upon desired thickness of soup) Garnish with crumbled blue cheese or crushed amaretti cookies; a lightly sweet, crunchy Italian cookie that has a distinct toasted almond flavor)
