Phyl is hosting a Pumpkin Roundup today and asked me to participate!
I just posted about my pumpkin fries and have one more recipe to share. I found this recipe while perusing my new obsession- Pinterest. My good friend Sarah got me hooked and now I'm finding myself pinning when I should be getting dinner made, getting out the door on a run, or getting myself to bed!
Have you heard of Pinterest? (It's pronounced- pin-terest. Like the words pin and interest put together.) It's a bit hard to explain. It's sort of like visual bookmarks. You create boards (think of a corkboard on your wall at home) and then you can "pin" images onto it. Now instead of ripping pages out of magazines to pin up, you're pinning photos/images from the web. You can have many different boards and you can see and interact with your friends and what they're pinning. The pin connects back to the original website, so you can pin a beautiful photo that just makes you happy, or you can pin a great craft idea or recipe and when you want to go back to it the pin will take you back to the original site. Like I said- visual bookmark.
But, back to the soup! I saw this great recipe for pumpkin curry soup and had to try it. The weather has just turned enough that the days are beautiful but the idea of pumpkin and cinnamon are so exciting.
Pumpkin Curry Soup
Adapted From: Sophistimom
1 small onion, minced
1 Tbs olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp cumin
1 large can (28 ounces) pumpkin puree
4 cups (32oz) low sodium chicken broth
1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
1 cup apple cider
1. In a large pot set over medium heat, saute onions in oil until tender, about 10-15 minutes. Stir in garlic and spices and cook for a minute more.
2. Stir in the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Taste soup and decide if pureeing with an immersion blender is needed. (Depends on preference of onion size.)
3. Serve with cilantro and a dollop of plain yogurt.
