Kürbissuppe

July 3, 2015

Since I live in the South Tirol, I thought I would share a little known recipe from my mountainous homeland: Kürbissuppe.

Kürbissuppe is basically pumpkin soup, but with a few important improvements. Many years ago, I had this dish at the Gasthof Zum Moren in Prissian, (South Tirol) Italy. Being very impressed with the taste and quality of the soup, I asked the owner for the recipe. I then took it home, tweaked it just a bit and have enjoyed it ever since on two continents. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients (Zutaten)

One slice of onion
A small bit of lauch
One Pumpkin (or 15 ounce can of pumpkin)
One 15 ounce can of chicken broth
One pint of heavy whipping cream
A splash of white wine
One teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
Two tablespoons of brown sugar
Salt and Pepper

Preparation (Zubereitung)

– First, cut the onion and lauch into very small pieces (fein geschnitten).
– Then sauté the onion and lauch in two tabelespoons of butter until brown.
– Introduce the pumpkin and the chicken broth together and stir thoroughly.
– Add a splash of white wine.
– Bring to a boil and simmer ingredients for 15 minutes.
– Add whipping cream, cinnamon, ginger and stir thoroughly.
– Add the brown sugar, stirring frequently and bring to a boil.
– Add salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 20 minutes.

Serving (Anrichten)

– Ladle into a shallow bowl.
– With a wet toothpick, swirl a bit of cinnamon on the surface of the soup and serve.

Guten Appetit!
