When the weather turns chilly, something warm and savory is called for, right? That's why I scoop my fall pumpkins off the porch (or heck, just open that can), and into the sauce pan...with a few essential ingredients, of course.
The gorgeous orange color of this soup calls for an equally vibrant piece of servingware. I'm pretty partial to our beautiful handcrafted Mexican Talavera pottery from our Amapola Collection.
RUSTICA SAVORY SOUP RECIPE
Saute onion and minced garlic in butter until onion in soft, using a large sauce pan or soup pot. Add in curry, cumin, coriander and red pepper, stir for about one minute. Assemble remaining ingredients (except for Crema and bread) and blend in pot. If you prefer silky smooth soup, run mixture in batches through a food processor. If you like a bit of texture, leave as is. Let soup heat through, and leave on slow simmer for about 30 minutes.
When done, remove from heat, put in serving bowls and top off with dollop of Crema and chopped parsley. Serve with crusty bread and a crisp green salad.

If you've had a chance to look at the extraordinary artisan-created Mexican pottery we showcase here at Rustica Gift, you may wonder why we make the distinction between Talavera pottery and its close, cousin, Majolica?
Are we trying to make life difficult for ourselves, as we already have committed ourselves to only the finest quality Talavera (no offense to the colorful and inexpensive Talavera planters, frogs, cats and other fun tourist and patio ware you can readily find). Is it just another fussy distinction in a world in which distinctions don't matter?
While shopping for beautiful things for no other reason than, well...shopping for beautiful things, here at Rustica Gift & Pottery, we'd like to offer you more.
We start by beautiful things for your enjoyment, but we also offer plenty of beautiful reasons to shop our gallery collection of Mexico's finest Talavera pottery, Majolica ceramics, Mexican pewter and alpaca silver.
Deep cobalt blue and golden sand; the colors of nature, and the hues found in our authentic Talavera pottery collection from Santa Rosa Majolica. Colors as bold and vivid as the tints found in this collection bringth warmth and focus to cool, contemporary homes, and rustic charm to the most vibrant design theme.
