Recipe Ingredients for Pumpkin Sausage Soup

1 1/2 lbs italian sausage
1/2 cup shitake mushrooms
1/2 a large onion, minced
15 oz of pumpkin
4 cups chicken stock
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 pinch of dried rosemary
1 tsp paprika
1 pinch of red pepper flakes
1 tsp sea salt or to taste
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 t butter or some other fat
1/2 cup coconut milk

Recipe Directions for Pumpkin Sausage Soup

  1. Heat the butter in a heavy deep pot and saute the mushrooms over medium-high heat until golden. Remove from the pot to a small bowl, leaving the butter.

  2. Add the onions to the pot and saute them until golden, then remove them to a separate bowl.

  3. Add the sausage to the pot and brown it until it is cooked through and looks tasty.

  4. Remove the sausage from the pot and set aside.

  5. Add the pumpkin to the pot and deglaze with the chicken stock*.

  6. Add the onions back in and simmer until the pumpkin is soft, about 10 minutes.

  7. Puree the soup (a hand blender is easiest, but a regular blender will do). Add in all the remaining ingredients except the coconut milk (don?t forget to add in the cooked mushrooms and sausage!), and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the coconut milk.

  8. * The easy way is to cook the onions, mushrooms and sausage all together at once and use canned pumpkin, saving some steps and a dirty blender. The easy way makes perfectly fine soup, but it won?t have the same layers of texture and flavor that the harder version does.
