Curried Pumpkin & Persimmon Soup

Foods.From.Spain's picture
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Onions 2 , finely chopped
  Pumpkin/Squash 1 Kilogram, peeled, deseeded & chopped into chunks
  Persimmons 2 , peeled & chopped into chunks
  Vegetable stock/Chicken stock 700 Milliliter
  Double cream 170 Milliliter
  Curry powder 2 Teaspoon
  Chopped coriander 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Handful)
  Creme fraiche 1 Tablespoon (1 dollop, to serve)

1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan, then gently cook the onions for 5 minutes, until soft but not coloured. Add the pumpkin or squash to the pan, and carry on cooking for 8-10 minutes with the lid on, stirring occasionally until it starts to soften and turn golden. Add the persimmon, replace the lid and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes.
2. Pour the stock into the pan, turn up the heat and bring to the boil, and then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes until the pumpkin is very soft. Pour the cream into the pan, add the curry powder, season and bring back to the boil. Remove from the heat and purée with a hand blender. For an extra-velvety consistency you can now push the soup through a fine sieve into another pan.
3. Serve piping hot with crusty bread, a dollop of crème fraîche and sprinkling of chopped coriander.
