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
