I’m a little sad today! 🙁 Today is the last recipe that you will get from Skinny Bitch Tuesday. I enjoyed meeting and getting to know the girls, Claire, Stephanie and Michelle. For our last recipe, Stephanie chose Pumpkin Soup. It’s a perfect recipe to say goodbye to Skinny Bitch Tuesday and a wonderful welcome into the Fall season.
This is the first time I ever made pumpkin soup and I am pleasantly surprised on how yummy it is!! Well maybe not, after all I am obsessed with pumpkin! Remember a couple of weeks ago I was making Pumpkin Puree and I said I wanted to go savory? This is what I used the pumpkin puree for. I will admit I really, really changed up the recipe from the cookbook. The cookbook called for a 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, plus almond milk and white wine. I didn’t add any of those ingredients into my soup. I like my soup more on the savory side, rather than sweet.
I decided to add chicken stock, coconut milk and sage. This soup was creamy, smooth, and savory. I really loved this soup, it was a perfect addition to my dinner, which was my Turkey, Cranberry and Pear Panini. It was the perfect Fall meal.
- 2 tbsp. butter
- ½ cup onion, diced
- ¾ cup (97 grams) apple, peeled and diced
- 2 cups fresh pumpkin, roasted or canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
- 1 tbsp. fresh sage leaves or ½ tbsp. dried sage
- 3 cups chicken stock, low sodium
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (carton) or non-fat milk
- Salt & pepper to taste
- In a stockpot over medium heat, melt butter and saute onion, roasted pumpkin, and sage until all are tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Puree the mixture with a hand emerser blender or pour in batches into a food processor or blender.
- Return the puree to the stockpot, add the chicken stock and simmer for 15 minutes. Then add the coconut milk and simmer for 5 more minutes, lowering the heat if necessary so it does not boil. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
