|Chunky Pumpkin Stew with Walnuts – Seriously Soupy
|Chunky Pumpkin Stew with Walnuts in an actual pumpkin – Seriously Soupy|
It’s been a good week in the world of Soupy: I started organizing a fall soup party (being held at Jimmy’s No. 43 in NYC), started a Brooklyn soup swap, and featured three soups on the site (thanks of course to the amazing Sage Butternut and Apple Soup guest post by Sanura Weathers!). This final soup of the week includes one of the quintessential vegetables of the fall: pumpkin! I didn’t want to create a soup just with pumpkin (although I do love a simple pumpkin), so I added cauliflower, potatoes, yellow squash, and walnuts to create a hearty and chunky meal-like soup. I also added one of my new favorite spices – cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves for the ultimate fall soup. An easy one to try this weekend, along with a loaf of pumpkin bread and pumpkin latte and a pumpkin whatever else you can get your hands on.
|The chunky part of the pumpkin soup – yellow squash, onions, potatoes and cauliflower|
2-3 cups of water, approx.
1/4 cup light heavy cream
3 cloves of garlic, minced
|It’s pumpkin season!|
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut open the pumpkin (from the top) and remove the seeds and place in the oven. Cut up the onion and garlic and add them to a pot, along with the olive oil. Turn on a low flame and let cook as you cut up the potatoes, squash, and cauliflower. Add them to the pot, along with the canned pumpkin, cream, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Check on the pumpkin and add scoop out the roasted pumpkin and add them to the pot, along with the crushed walnuts and cover. Let cook for another 15-20 minutes, stirring periodically and/or adding some water (you will know if you have to). Turn off the flame, taste with salt and pepper and place some of the soup in a blender. Serve chunky with walnuts and enjoy!
How do you make your pumpkin soup?
