“This is a lovely soup to begin an meal with Indian flavors or for serving in the fall when apples begin to come in. It has a mild curry flavor with a delicate sweetness from the apples. It may be served hot or cold. Although the preparation time appears long, most of this is simmering and sitting time for the stock - no real effort required. This recipe is from Mollie Katzen's "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest."”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The Stock:
  2. Combine peels and cores from the apples and the cleaned onion and garlic skins with cinnamons sticks, apple juice, and water. Simmer partially covered for 45 minutes. Remove from heat, let stand one hour. Strain and discard solids.
  3. The Soup:
  4. Mis together the flour and spices.
  5. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add butter, ginger, garlic, and a dash of salt. Stir and cook for a minute or so, then add the onions. Saute another 5 minutes then add 1 teaspoons of salt and the apples, stirring well. Add lemon juice and sprinkle on the spice mixture, stirring constantly. Cover and cook 8-10 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat and let rest 10 minutes while you heat the stock.
  6. Puree the stock and apple mixture in a food processor or blender until very smooth. Transfer to a stock pot or heavy saucepan and whisk in the yogurt or sour cream. Do not cook the soup further or the sour cream/yogurt may separate. If this should happen, just put it back in the blender. It will not be very pretty, but will still taste good. For serving cold, chill until serving time.
  7. For serving hot, reheat gently over very low heat just before serving. I usually use the microwave for this.
  8. Served topped with toasted almond slivers.
  9. **Note: 1/2 TBS. mild curry powder or garam masala may be substituted for the mixed spices if desired.
