Ingredients

FOR THE SOUP

  • 1 Tbsp vegan "butter" (or: regular butter if not vegan)
  • 1 Tbsp shallot-infused olive oil (or: 1 Tbsp oil of choice and 8 oz chopped onion)
  • 3 fresh sage leaves (or: ¼ tsp ground sage)
  • 3 cups unsalted vegetable stock
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • ½ cup blanched almonds
  • 1 15 oz can pureed pumpkin
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • tsp ground cayenne pepper (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS (per bowl)

Equipment

Blender
Measuring Cup
Medium Pot

Instructions

  • Brown: Add the oil, "butter", sage, and (optional) onions to a soup pot on medium heat. Sautee until butter is a light caramel color (about 4-5 minutes).
  • Simmer: Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot, bring to a boil, then turn heat to low and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Blend: Carefully pour soup into blender. Remove center of blender lid (to allow steam to escape) and place lid on blender. Holding clean towel over hole in lid, blend on med-high until soup has visibly lightened in color and appears smooth
  • Top: Add optional toppings, or use as a vessel for your favorite sandwich.
  • Store: This soup stores great in the fridge for 3-4 days. Frozen, it can last up to 3 months.

Notes

  • I have also used almonds with the skin on and the soup has still turned out very creamy, perhaps with a slightly more nutty flavor.
  • Salt and pepper to taste, but as a reference I like to use about ½ tsp of salt and several cracks of fresh cracked pepper. 
  • This recipe serves about four, where each serving is about 1 ⅔ cup. This soup can also easily be serve two as a heartier meal.
