    This is a great soup using the unexpected combination of pears and apples that are seasoned lightly with sage, ginger and bay.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat margarine
    • 3 tart apples, peeled, cored and diced
    • 3 pears peeled, cored and diced
    • 5 cups (1 1/4 litres) vegetable stock
    • 1/2 teaspoon sage
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons pureed fresh ginger
    • 1 tablespoon diced fresh parsley

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Melt the margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the apples and pears in the melted margarine for about 5 minutes.
    2. Add the vegetable stock, sage, pepper and bay leaf to the saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Place a cover on the saucepan and allow the mixture to simmer until hot and the apples and pears are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
    3. Pour about 1/3 of the soup into a blender filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold the lid of the blender in place with a towel and carefully start the blender using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth; pour into a clean saucepan. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the saucepan.
    4. Return the pureed soup to the saucepan and warm over medium heat until completely reheated. Garnish with parsley to serve.
