This Fall Pumpkin Spice Soup recipe is the answer to many winter comfort prayers! A creamy soup, light on the carbs, served hot, will keep you full and warm long enough to love your fellow man again.
2 cups Pumpkin Puree
1 Onion chopped
1 cup chopped Bacon
1 cup water (or chicken stock)
6 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Allspice
1 Tbsp Nutmeg
1 Tbsp Chopped Mint
Saute onions and bacon together until onions are translucent.
Add Pumpkin puree and water, stir and bring to a simmer.
Swirl the honey and taste. If it needs to be sweeter, now is the time.
Stir in the Nutmeg, Allspice, and Cinnamon sisters.
Stir in chopped mint.
Garnish with a swirl of Olive oil (optional) but encouraged!
For a more daring touch of Southern twist, add a shot of Bourbon! These ingredients play well together!
I added cream to the POPUP: SOUTHERN BY MIAMI version to make it more mellow since it also had Bourbon.
