Before all the troops got to our house for our after-Christmas celebration, I needed to whip up a quick lunch for mom, The Hubs, and me as we hastily finished our last minute gift making and meal planning.
I had one link of andouille left over from the Corn Chowder with Andouille and I have lots and lots of butternut puree in the freezer. Viola! A new soup was born.
1 T. olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
6 oz. andouille, chopped
1/2 c. white wine
1/2 c. unsweetened apple sauce
2 c. chicken broth
2 c. butternut puree
1/2 t. rubbed sage
salt and pepper
pinch of chipotle powder
Heat olive oil in a large sauce pan. Add onions and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add chopped andouille and saute on medium heat another 3-4 minutes.
Add white wine and let reduce by half. Add chicken broth, butternut puree, sage, salt and pepper and chipotle powder.
Bring to a simmer and simmer 10 minutes.
