Pear Soup with Chocolate Swirl
With a decorative drizzle of chocolate, this soup is elegant and distinctive.
4 D'Anjou or Bosc pears, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 cups white grape juice
1 cup vanilla rice milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Fresh lemon juice, as needed
2 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon oil or margarine
- Peel, core, and coarsely chop pears. In a medium saucepan, combine pears with grape
juice. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until pears are tender, about 10
minutes. Remove from heat and drain pears, reserving poaching liquid. Allow pears and
juice to cool.
- In a food processor, puree pears with 1/2 cup of the poaching liquid. (Reserve remaining
poaching liquid for further poaching or chill and drink as a beverage.)
- Transfer pear puree to a large bowl and whisk in rice milk and vanilla. Taste for
sweetness and add lemon juice as needed. Chill until serving time.
- To make chocolate swirl, combine chocolate chips with margarine or oil in a small bowl
and microwave for 10 seconds. Stir and continue to microwave, 5 seconds at a time, until
chocolate is melted. Transfer chocolate to a parchment cone or small zip-lock bag. Cut a
very small hole in the cone or one corner of the bag. Ladel soup into individual bowls and
pipe on chocolate swirl.
Makes 6 servings.
