Pumpkin Soup in Pumpkin Bowls

Posted: Monday, October 18, 2004

By: CRISCOŽ (Expired article)

Create a festive dinner setting when you use real pumpkins as the bowls to serve this delicious, creamy soup.

6 small pumpkins
4 tablespoons CRISCOŽ Pure Canola Oil
3 cloves minced garlic
1 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped celery
1 quart chicken or vegetable broth
1 (16 ounce) can unsweetened pumpkin
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup apple juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Sour cream (optional)
Finely chopped chives (optional)

1. Cut the tops off of the 6 small pumpkins and set the tops aside. Hollow out the pumpkins, taking care not to puncture the skin. Slice a very small amount off the bottom of each pumpkin, so they won't tip. If you do not want to serve the soup in pumpkins, skip this step; soup bowls are fine.
2. Heat the CRISCOŽ Pure Canola Oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add the garlic, onion, and celery, and cook until tender. Add the broth, pumpkin, ginger, and nutmeg and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. Allow to cool. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3. In a food processor or blender, puree the soup until smooth. Return to the pot and add the apple juice and simmer for about 2-3 minutes. Place each pumpkin on a serving plate and fill about 3/4 to the top of each. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of chives. Place the tops on the pumpkins and enjoy!

Makes 6 servings.
