One of my favorite things about the colder seasons is making and eating lots of soup. Nada de lo que se calienta mejor, dentro y por fuera, que sostiene un cuenco humeante en sus manos y cuchara delicioso, sabrosa sopa en la boca. Es cálido, acogedor y reconfortante.
Con acción de gracias viene, my cooking turns to all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pasta, pumpkin tofu scrambles, pumpkin baking and so of course, pumpkin soup. While I suppose I could take the time to roast my own pumpkins for my recipes, right now they are busy making my table look all harvest-y autumn-y.
That’s why canned pumpkin is such a lifesaver. And a huge time saver. I’m sure we all have a stack of canned pumpkin just waiting for us to create seasonal noms. But this year, my pumpkin came in a container rather than a can.
Pacífico Alimentos makes the most incredible Organic Pumpkin Puree that comes in a 16-oz. (1-lb) contenedor. It’s smooth, rich and full of flavor.
Since I was making my pumpkin soup with Pacific Foods Organic Pumpkin Puree, it only seemed right to use Pacific Foods Organic Low-Sodium Vegetable Broth.
Pacífico Alimentos makes very flavorful broth full of savory vegetables like leeks, cebollas, ajo, zanahorias, celery and tomatoes. They also make Simply Stock – an unsalted organic vegetable stock that has all those vegetables plus mushrooms that get simmered for hours. Yum!
Pacific Foods has lots of delicious products that can help with your holiday cooking from broths and soup starters to gravies and cranberry sauces and they make my favorite Organic Hemp Milk.
So with my pumpkin puree and vegetable broth in hand, I started out to make my pumpkin soup. I wanted it to be spicy so I added some curry powder, cinnamon and ginger for some heat. Then I added apple sauce to balance it out.
To make it creamy, I added some milk but not just any milk. I added So Delicious Dairy-Free Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk. Why not add another layer of pumpkin flavor if you can? Honestamente, I could add So Delicious Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk to everything.
To top off the soup and to continue the apple flavor from the apple sauce, I roasted apple chunks with some brown sugar to make apple croutons. The sweet apple croutons add a pretty and flavorful balance to the spicy soup.
My Curried Pumpkin Soup with Apple Croutons makes a perfect dish for your holiday menu. Pacific Foods helps make that happen. Check out all their great products and enjoy!
