Recipe for Kristi’s Harvest Soup
|Kristi's Harvest Soup...before it's pureed|
FALL SOUP (kids LOVE this soup too-just alter the chili pepper a bit)
AMAZING soup that I "accidentally" made a few years ago...and it is one of the best soups I have ever made..I didn't have all the ingredients and so I improvised ( and thank goodness wrote down my improvisation! )....we call it HARVEST SOUP......it has amazing flavor and chock full of healthy antioxidants....
This soup can be refrigerated in airtight containers for up to three days or frozen for up to three months.
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2-3 large leeks, white and pale-green parts only, roughly chopped, washed well (1 cup)
1 large onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
|A mountain of Sweet Potatoes convinced me to|
double the spices.
4 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch dice
3 quarts chicken stock
Coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper
•Radish sprouts, for garnish (optional)
•sour cream or creme fraiche (optional). I put cream in a bowl with some spices and mix...then I spoon into soup and use a •chopstick to make a "swirl" of cream before I serve.
•several mini "sugar pie" pumpkins- I have also scooped out baby pumpkins, roast for 30 min.. and serve soup inside.
1. Combine spices in a small bowl. In a medium saucepan, heat butter and oil over medium heat. Add leeks and onion; cook until translucent, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with spices; add sweet potatoes, squash, and carrots. Stir well to combine.
2. Add chicken stock to the mixture in the saucepan, and simmer over low heat, partially covered, until vegetables are tender, about 40 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
3. Transfer soup to a blender, working in batches, if necessary, so as not to fill jar more than halfway; process until smooth. Return puree to saucepan; place over low heat until heated through. Serve hot; garnish each bowl with a handful of radish sprouts, if using.
