Whilst Mr Weiss was in Seattle over the weekend and I was still stuck in NYC I spent my time tooling about in the kitchen, making some good things and dumping some horrifying disasters!
1 lg pumpkin (peeled, seeded and cut into 2 inch chunks)
not sure what this is called, but this is what I used for the soup and it was delicious, it looks like this inside…
1 lg onion chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
1 tsp curry powder
3 cups veggie stock
3/4 c half and half
2 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper
In a large pot over medium heat add olive oil and saute onions and garlic about 5 mins until translucent, add pumpkin, stir and add in salt, pepper and curry powder, cover with lid and sweat out 10 mins. Add stock and continue to simmer until pumpkin is soft and breaking down. About 30 mins. Blend with immersion blender or transfer to blender and puree (wait till it cools otherwise you will be wearing your soup!), add half and half, adjust seasonings and serve OR save.
for a colder rainier day.
