A Taste Of The Season

 
Pumpkin Bisque Soup
 
Wait, soup? Pumpkin soup? I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, but never had tried pumpkin soup. I was somewhat hesitant but one spoonful and I was hooked! I discovered that it was the most delicious, creamy, warm-your-tummy goodness ever to grace a bowl! If left it to cool just enough so that it didn't burn my mouth, it thickened and allowed all those tongue tingling ingredients to meld together. Oh such a wonderful delight to the palate! I placed crushed saltine crackers into mine, which I think gave it just the right touch! Soon, my bowl was empty and there was nothing left to do but look up the recipe and make some more! Hope you like it as much as I did - enjoy!

1 1/2 tbsp. unsalted butter

1 small onion, chopped

1 c. pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin

1 1/4 c. chicken broth

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1 c. heavy cream

Salt and freshly ground pepper

In medium saucepan saute onion in butter until translucent, not brown. Add pumpkin, chicken broth, 2 cups water, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add cream. Gently heat bisque until hot. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
This would be so great in a little pumpkin-shaped bowl or, I was even thinking of serving it in a hollowed-out pumpkin! Wouldn't that be so cute and festive?
