Pumpkin Apple Bisque (Vegan!)
Veggies & Fruit
- 1 medium sugar pumpkin, or large butternut squash, about 2 lb
- 1 small yellow onion, diced, about 1.5 cups
- 1 large apple, I love honeycrisps or substitute a large ripe pear
- 1 cup full fat coconut milk, 8 oz
- vegetable broth, start with 1 cup
- 1 thumb of ginger root, peeled and roughly chopped
- 2 garlic cloves
- Pinch of ground cardamom
- Pinch of cayenne or hot curry powder
- Pinch of salt
- pumpkin seeds
- drizzle of coconut milk
- fresh thyme leaves
- On a parchment lined baking sheet, roast the squash halves brushed with oil, salt, and pepper at 375°F for 35-45 minutes, or until very soft. Let cool for 15 minutes or so, then scoop out the squash. Set aside.
- In a heavy bottomed soup pot, sauté the onions and apples for a few minutes over low heat, until fragrant and softened.
- Add squash, sautéed apples and onions, coconut milk, and seasonings to a blender.
- Return to pot and gently heat over low heat, but do not boil, as the coconut milk is delicate and should not be overheated.
- Season to a taste, and garnish with a drizzle of coconut milk, pumpkin seeds, and fresh thyme leaves.
