Curried Apple Soup

 
1 cup shallots, finely diced
2 T. safflower oil
1 T. curry powder
2 t. ginger, minced
1/4 cup sherry
3 lbs. cooking apples of choice, peeled, cored, and diced
4 cups vegetable stock
1 cup apple juice
1 cup soy milk, Sweet Apple Cider-Nut Milk, or other non-dairy milk
1-2 T. lemon juice
salt and pepper, to taste
 

In a large pot, saute the shallots in oil for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the curry powder and ginger, and saute an additional minute. Add the sherry, and stir well to deglaze the pot. Add the diced apples, vegetable stock, and apple juice, and bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the apples are tender. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. In a food processor or blender, in batches, puree the soup until smooth, and return the soup to the pot. Whisk in the soy milk, a little of the lemon juice, and season to taste with salt and pepper. If desired, add additional curry powder, apple juice, or lemon juice to the soup to adjust the sweetness or spicy flavor of the soup to your own personal taste. Serve hot or cold.

Serves 6-8
