Gingered Pumpkin-Pear Soup

MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: miversen1982
Recipe Category: Soup
Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
    A swirl of lime-laced sour cream adds a burst of flavor to this smooth autumn soup.

    1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
    2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
    1 tbsp. margarine or butter
    3 pears, peeled, cored, and sliced
    1 15-oz. can pumpkin
    1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
    1 cup milk
    1/3 cup light dairy sour cream
    1/2 tsp. finely shredded lime peel (optional)
    1 tbsp. lime juice

    In a large saucepan cook onion and ginger in a hot margarine or butter until onion is tender. Stir in pears; cook 1 minute more. Stir in pumpkin and vegetable broth; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 5 minutes more or until pears are tender. Cool slightly. In a blender container or food processor bowl, cover and blend or process half of the pumpkin mixture at a time until smooth, about 1 minute. Return mixture to saucepan; stir in milk. Heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together sour cream, the 1/2 teaspoon lime peel, and lime juice. Top each serving of soup with a drizzle of the sour cream mixture. Garnish with additional lime peel, if desired. Makes 6 side-dish servings
