So with this recipe I was an idiot and a genius! I made this a lot last year and when I made it again the other day I thought it tasted more savory then I remember. THEN I realized I totally forgot to add the brown sugar....idiot. It was fine, but the sugar makes it the DELICIOUS recipe that it is. :) When adding the brown sugar I heated it up a little and made a spider web...genius! Maybe that's an overstatement, but cute right?
Creamy Pumpkin Soup (based on this recipe)
2 T brown sugar
1/2 t ground cinnamon
2 c chopped onion
2 T butter
4 cans (14.5 ounces) chicken broth
1 29 ounce can of pumpkin puree (make your own puree)
2 t salt
1/4 t ground ginger
1/4 t ground black pepper
2 cups whole milk
Saute onion in butter in saucepan until tender.
Add 2 cans of chicken broth
Stir and bring to boil
Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes
Transfer mixture to blender
Blend until smooth
Return mixture to saucepan
Add remaining 2 cans of chicken broth
Add pumpkin, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, pepper
Stir well, bring to boil
Cover, reduce heat, simmer 10 minutes stirring occasionally
Stir in milk - do no boil
A good side with this soup is sourdough bread or cinnamon sugar toast.
How to Make Spider Web (if your going to do this I would omit brown sugar from the soup...otherwise it will be too sweet)
take a little soup and add brown sugar
stir and add to plastic bag
cut tiny hole in corner of bag
make circles best you can - kinda hard with a bag hole..lol
use toothpick to make web - make lines from the middle out
Yona..brown sugar makes everything nice :)
