Curried Pumpkin Soup

Carolyn Haas


I found this in a Penzey's spice catalog by Sandy Bingham. I changed a few things to suit our taste and what I had available. There is no one curry powder in this recipe; "curry" originally meant a mixture of spices used in a particular region, so the curry in this recipe is a mixture of spices!
