Creamiest Curry Pumpkin Soup
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1 c chopped onion
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1½ tsp curry powder
- ¼ tsp ground white pepper
- 3 c chicken broth
- 15 oz Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin
- 1 can Nestlé Carnation Evaporated Milk
- MELT butter in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in curry powder, salt and pepper; cook 1 minute.
- ADD broth and pumpkin; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in evaporated milk. Transfer mixture to food processor or blender (in batches, if necessary – only fill 2/3 full, especially if warm); cover. Blend until smooth. Serve warm.
How to make a pumpkin bowl.
You’ve created the creamiest pumpkin soup, now serve it in a memorable way – in a pumpkin bowl.
You can use small pumpkins for individual servings (6″) or one large one for a soup tureen.
Great idea for an autumn party, Thanksgiving dinner, or for Halloween with a spider web design as shown.
You can cut off the top, hollow it out, oil the flesh so it won’t discolor and use like that or with a clear bowl inside. Or – you can follow the directions below and make the pumpkin edible too.
- serrated knife
- serrated grapefruit spoon or regular teaspoon
- narrow basting brush
- olive oil
- salt & pepper
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Wash & dry the pumpkin.
- Cut off the top third of the pumpkin and scrape out the insides like a jack-o-lantern.
- Scrape the insides to 1/2″ thick. Ensure top opening is large enough to be a bowl.
- Dip basting brush in oil and brush the inside of the pumpkin, and the flesh of the lids if using. Don’t forget the rim of the pumpkin – it will discolor if not brushed. Do NOT get oil on the outside skin of the pumpkin – this will make it char which doesn’t look nice.
- Season with salt & pepper (or sugar if you’re using the bowl for a dessert server.)
- Bake for 20 minutes or until the flesh is tender, but not browned.
- Fill with pumpkin soup just before serving.
If you’d rather use a ceramic pumpkin bowl or tureen, here are some gorgeous ones on Amazon:
I love all the special touches that add to a party theme, don’t you? And when the pumpkin bowl is so easy to make, why not?
