Great on a cool fall day! I first had pumpkin soup in a little cafe in Bellingham, WA. They wouldn't share their recipe, so I began experimenting at home and finally decided it was curry that made it so memorable. I usually increase the amount of curry, it's all a matter of preference depending on my mood and the occasion as to how much I end up using.
