Gorgonzola soup topped with Caramelized Pear

i bought some gorgonzola cheese and pears this week in the hopes of participating in December's Recipes to Rival challenge but laziness struck me and i ixnayed that idea. now i had to figure out what to do with the combo. i was quite pleased to see a luscious Roasted Onion and Gorgonzola Soup on foodgawker from Northwest Noshings. easy enough, warm, soothing and comforting. exactly what i wanted to make on the first day of the new year.

the only things i omitted were the bacon and heavy cream. i used milk instead. this dish actually turned out completely vegetarian. i used left over veggie broth i had in the freezer from the miso butternut squash soup i had made in November. the thyme in the broth adds a nice hint of herb to the soup. i am so enthusiastic about this soup! i didn't bother with any other seasoning. i did kinda forget about the pears as they were carmelizing so they're a tad bit on the burnt side. oops! still very good tho!

i can't begin to say how incredibly sinful this soup is. i've always liked the combo of the slightly pungent gorgonzola with soft ripeness of pear. this.is.amazing.

***note: this song is actually, when played by a full orchestra is called Bella's Lullaby and was featured in the movie Twilight and arranged by Carter Burwell. the arrangement on piano is that of Yiruma, who is friggin amazing.
