PUMPKIN SOUP

I've gone and made pumpkin soup again - probably for about the 15th year in a row. It tastes rather bland... as it did last year and the one before and although it isn't offensive, it is simply a nothing soup... so I'm blogging it in the hope that next Halloween I stumble upon what I am writing tonight and don't, once again, rustle up four litres of pumpkin soup, and instead opt for one of my other, more exciting soup recipes!

I like pumpkin soup. Made on chicken with lots of ginger, garlic and chili and with leeks and soy sauce.

Mine has chili and cumin - thanks for the tip - when I accidentally make it again next year I will add what you suggest!

Cumin? Of all the delicius spices in the world - cumin is the only one I've found disgusting! :)

Do you use one of the big pumpkins or one "made" for food, like butternut or hokkaido? I've heard that the big pumpkins are useless for food.

I don't mind cumin in curries... but I think you are right I need nice pumpkin not these silly carving ones - I just get tempted because they are only £1!
