We’re counting down until Thanksgiving day. From now until next Thursday, we will provide you with some delicious recipes to prepare for the big meal; courtesy of www.recipe4living.com.
To keep you warm, we chose a recipe for Pumpkin Bisque:
–Olive oil or canola oil
-1 medium white onion (diced)
-2 C. pumpkin puree
-4 C. chicken stock
-1/3 tsp. curry powder, or to your taste
-2 C. half-and-half
-Salt and pepper
Slowly sauté onion and garlic in oil until transparent, about 5 minutes. Add pumpkin puree and chicken stock, bay leaf, sugar, curry, nutmeg and mix well. Bring to boil, and then lower heat to simmer. Cook 20 – 30 minutes. Taste for seasoning. Add half-and-half and simmer another 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Blend in batches in blender. Strain through a fine strainer. Reheat gently, and serve with toasted coconut.
