This is a tried and true pumpkin soup recipe. This thick soup is a meal in itself - ideal with just some bread on the side. You can give or take with the listed ingredients to your liking.
Something else. if you cut pumpkin in half, roast in oven then scoop out and use puree, is much easier to handle if like me you have arthritis - 21 Feb 2010
Made it for the first time, didnt add the curry powder actually forgot, but glad i didnt as feel the taste of the bacon complemented the pumpkin lovely, also added some single cream instead of double, absolutely delicious. Glad i came across this recipe - 28 Oct 2011
Despite a sceptical husband I persevered with this recipe while he and our little girl carved the huge pumpkin. Got enough flesh out for the soup - just about! I used creme fraiche instead of cream and did half curry powder and half garam masala. I only needed half the sugar suggested and found I needed plenty of salt as well as pepper. I also added 2 cloves of garlic to the bacon lardons. It was fabulous and husband very impressed! - 29 Oct 2011
