    1. Heat oil in a stock pot over medium heat and saute onion, garlic, pumpkin and apple for 5 minutes while stirring. Don't allow the onion to brown.
    2. Add half of the stock, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes until pumpkin is soft over medium heat.
    3. Meanwhile, roast pumpkin seeds in a dry pan until they are lightly browned, stirring often so they do not burn. Remove from pan, let cool slightly and coarsely chop.
    4. Puree the soup with a hand blender, add the remaining stock and bring to the boil. Add cream and season with salt, pepper, curry, ginger and allspice. Refine with balsamic vinegar and soy sauce.
    5. Ladle into soup bowls and garnish with the pumpkin seeds.

    I've made this soup several times. It's absolutely gorgeous. The hint of Apple that comes through is just wonderful. I've also made it using butternut squash, and that works too. Have now tweaked the spices to suit myself, but there's no need to when you first make it. Would highly recommend it.  -  24 Nov 2015


    I didn't use the apple, seeds, curry powder, balsamic or soy sauce. I did add some chilli which gave it that extra zing! Lovely!  -  18 Oct 2015
