Ingredients


1/2 cup White onion (chopped)
1 1/2 tsp Garlic (minced)
1 1/2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
3 cup Chicken broth (stock) (can use vegetable broth)
1 can (15oz) Pumpkin purée, canned
1/4 cup packed Brown sugar
2 tbsp Chai tea leaves (can use in a tea filter or use store bought chai tea bag - see note below for additional info)
1/4 cup Heavy cream, 38% M.F.
1 pinch Salt (to taste)
1 dash Black pepper (to taste)

Instructions


Place the onion, garlic and oil in a small bowl and microwave, stirring occasionally until the onion is softened, about 3 minutes.

Scrape the onion mixture into your slow cooker (I used my 2-Quart).

Add the broth, pumpkin puree, sugar and tea bag.

Stir to combine.

Cover and cook until the flavors meld, about 4 to 5 hours on LOW.

Remove the tea bag.

Carefully, puree small batches of the soup in your blender, until smooth. Be sure to fill the blender not more than two-thirds full and hold the cover of your blender in place with a folded dish towel to prevent it from exploding and burning you with hot soup! Pulse quickly a few times before blending continuously.

Return the pureed chai crock pot pumpkin soup to your slow cooker. Stir in the cream and let it sit until heated through, about 5 minutes.

If the soup seems to thick, add a little more broth to thin it to desired consistence.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Note:

Use ¼ teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, and ground cardamom for the chai teabag if desired.
