Last night Calder and I made this yummy soup! And I got to use my newest kitchen tool (thanks to my realtor for the housewarming gift!)

Apple Pumpkin Soup Recipe
2 – 15 oz cans pumpkin puree
6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
2/3 cups applesauce
2 granny smith, or other tart apples, diced
1 small onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cream
1. Preheat large soup pot. Drizzle with olive oil. Add diced onion, apples and a little kosher salt. Saute until onions are translucent. Add chicken or vegetable stock, apple sauce, and spices. Bring to a boil and cook until apples are very tender.
2. Add pumpkin and brown sugar and cook for 10 – 15 minutes over medium heat. Use a submersible blender to blend soup until it is smooth. You can also use your blender to blend the soup in batches. Add cream to soup and heat through, but do not boil. Add more cream or water if desired to thin out more. Remove from heat and serve. Garnish with sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried apple slices or hazelnuts.
Here’s me using the submersible blender!! New favorite tool!
Really great flavor combinations. Next time we’ll probably leave out the thyme as neither of us are huge fans, but Calder especially. Enjoy another fall themed recipe!
PS- the brick guy is coming today and tomorrow to fill in our wall! So hopefully next week I’ll have more update pictures!!
