by the Editors of Easy Home Cooking Magazine

Yield: Makes 8 servings

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon oil

1 large sweet onion (such as Walla Walla), peeled and coarsely chopped

1 large Golden Delicious apple, peeled and coarsely chopped

3 slices (1/4-inch thick) fresh ginger

2-1/2 cups chicken broth, divided

2 cans (15 ounces each) solid-pack pumpkin

1 cup half-and-half

1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder

1 teaspoon salt

Black pepper

Additional chicken broth, if needed

Pumpkin seeds, raisins or whipping cream for garnish (optional)

Preparation:

1. Heat oil in large saucepan. Add onion, apple and ginger. Cook and stir 10 minutes over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup chicken broth. Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until apple is tender.

2. Pour onion mixture into blender; purée. Return to saucepan. Add pumpkin, remaining 2 cups chicken broth, half-and-half, curry powder, salt and pepper to taste. If soup is too thick, add additional broth, a little at a time, until soup reaches desired consistency. Cook until heated through.

3. Sprinkle each serving with pumpkin seeds and/or raisins, if desired, or drizzle cream on top of soup to make a Halloween design.

Mmmmmm! Comfort food that’s good for you.
