Quick and Easy Harvest Soup --
Guys, last night I made a super yummy Fall dinner. With the weather getting colder in the last week, we've all been craving the warmth of hearty soups here in my house!
In keeping with the spirit of the Harvest season, I decided to try a new soup recipe:
Vegan Sage & Almond Pumpkin Soup.
With only a handful of ingredients, not only was it so easy to prepare, but iI had most of these ingredients right in my cupboard!
I've detailed the recipe below, but let me tell you that I made a few additions of my own as I tasted the soup cooking. First of all, my gang prefers a bit of sweetness, so I took it upon myself to add 1/4 tsp each of nutmeg and cinnamon. Then after I had poured each serving in bowls, I indulged in a drizzle of maple syrup, which truly made a difference in the flavor.
Let us know if you try this at home!!
The ingredients included
3 Sage Leaves
2 Tbs of vegan butter
1 Chopped Onion
15oz can of pumpkin puree
32 oz of Vegetable Broth
1/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup of blanched slivered almonds
1/4 cup of chopped blanched almonds
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Simply sautee the sage and onions in the butter covered for about 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together 1/4 cup of the vegetable broth with 1/4 cup of the flour.
Add the flour mixture, pumpkin puree, and 1/4 cup of blanched slivered almonds, vegetable broth, salt and pepper to the onion mixture.
Let it cook for about 5 minutes. Pour into a blender to purree and then return to the pot for a few more minutes.
Serve and garnish with some chopped almonds.
