Jenn brought this soup to the post adventure race party and was a big hit. By popular demand here is the recipe.
Spicy Pumpkin Soup
1 lb Italian Sausage (Boulder Sausage is a pretty clean brand, or make your own 🙂
1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 large onion, finely chopped
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cooked (I cubed and boiled it)
1/2 cup coconut milk (full fat, canned – Thai Kitchen brand is best)
1 quart chicken broth
1 tsp ground oregano
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp sea salt
pinch of red pepper flakes
In large stock pot, heat olive oil. Saute onions until translucent and lightly browned. Add in pumpkin, chicken broth, sweet potato, and spices. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer for 20 minutes.
In skillet, cook sausage until browned. Set aside.
Use immersion blender or pour soup contents into blender and mix until smooth. Return to stock pot.
Add in sausage and coconut milk and heat through.
Serve with roasted pumpkin seeds.
