Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp. margarine
  • 1 Large onion finely chopped
  • 2 carrots finely chopped
  • 28 oz chicken broth 2 14.5 cans of chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 29 oz. canned pumpkin 1 can plain pumpkin
  • 1 golden delicious apple peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1 tsp. salt optional
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • 1. Melt margarine in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add onions and carrots, cook 5 minutes or until soft.
  • 2. Add broth, water, pumpkin, apple, ginger, salt, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3. Cool mixture slightly by removing from heat for a short period of time. Using a blender or food processor, puree soup in batches. I use an immersion blender blending it right in the pot.
  • 4. Return blended soup to pot and whisk in heavy cream by hand. Reheat, but do not boil! Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top and serve! Enjoy!
