Decadent Pumpkin Soup

By Marcia Passos Duffy

Okay, this is not low fat or low carb or low sugar or anything related to a "good" diet. BUT, it tastes wonderfully rich! And we all deserve that during the fall and winter months.

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
6 cups chicken broth
3 cups pumpkin puree
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1/4cup dry red wine
Salt and pepper to taste
Nutmeg & sprig of parsley for garnish

Heat the butter in a heavy saucepan and sauté the onion until it is soft. Stir in the chicken broth, pumpkin, sugar and spices. Continue stirring and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the cream and adjust seasonings to taste. Add red wine and carefully bring the soup to a boil. Serve immediately (or can be served cold). Sprinkle with nutmeg and add a sprig of parsley if desired to garnish.

Serves 6-8.
