Are you hosting a family dinner this Christmas?
Do you need a delicious recipe for a potluck or party?
Well I have something tasty for you to try!
This awesome recipe was made even better by some great ingredients I was given to try from Pacific foods. These organic “Carton Smart” ingredients were delicious, easy to open, and something I felt great about cooking with.
Thankfully I didn’t have anything planned for the cranberry sauce because Nathan had his eyes on it as soon as it came out of the package. The kid loves cranberry sauce.
Let me tell you. This stuff is gooooddd!! Seriously like homemade good…eat with a spoon good.
One of the things I really liked about these cartons is not only is it easier to stack them all up in your cabinets but while you’re cooking you don’t have to stop and find your can opener.
These just tear right open.
Great for a busy momma!
After we scarfed down the cranberries I set to work whipping up some delicious Creamy Pumpkin Soup with the pumpkin and chicken broth.
Take these, add a few other things and you’ll have this!
Here’s what you’ll need
1- Cup chopped onion
2- Small Celery stalks chopped
1- medium Leek
1- large garlic clove chopped
1- lb potatos, peeled and chopped
15oz- Pumpkin Puree
4- Cups Chicken stock
1- Cinnamon stick
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 1/2 -Cups 1/2&1/2
2- Tbsp Maple syrup
Melt your butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add in your onion, celery, leek, and garlic. Cook them for a few minutes until the onion is clear.
Now add in your potatoes, chicken stock, cinnamon stick and nutmeg, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Add in pumpkin puree and simmer another 5 minutes.
Remove the cinnamon stick.
Using an immersion blender blend your soup until it’s nice and smooth.
Now add in your half and half and syrup. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve it up and enjoy it’s deliciousness. This is great as an appetizer or as dinner with some good bread. Yum yum yum!!
