    I'm tempted to cook a few days pumpkin soup, but I would not want to spoil. Do you know of a good recipe for it?

    I have a few recipes I like.  This one's so simple and tasty...

    Pumpkin Soup

    1 large onion, chopped 
    1/2 stick butter 
    1 teaspoon curry powder 
    2 cups canned pumpkin 
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt (or to taste) 
    2 cups heavy cream 
    2 1/2 cups chicken stock 
    Pinch each of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, or to taste (see *Note below)

    Optional garnishes: cubes of cream cheese, dollop of sour cream, minced chives, parsley, or roasted pumpkin seeds 

    Sauté the onion in butter until it is limp but not browned. Sprinkle with curry powder, and continue to cook for a few minutes. In batches, in a blender or food processor (or using an immersion blender for the entire mixture), puree the onions with the pumpkin and salt, then add the cream, continuing to blend. Transfer this mixture to a soup pot or saucepan and whisk in the chicken stock. Heat slowly, seasoning with the spices (see Note). Do not allow to boil. Serve hot...nice to serve it in a large hollowed-out pumpkin "tureen" or in individual/small hollowed-out pumpkin "bowls." Garnish with desired toppings listed above.

    *Note: Use a very light hand with the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. You don't want the soup to taste like liquid pumpkin pie. Start with a pinch of each and check the taste. Alternatively, use only the allspice, or a pinch of ground cloves, and increase the curry powder slightly.
