Creamy Pumpkin Curry Soup

Last night our porch light was off, most of the house darkened, and Vincent Price films were on the TV. It’s the second or third year that we decided to have a quiet Halloween and it seemed like the perfect night to make this recipe I found on the Atkins site.

The soup was great, but you really need to like both curry and pumpkin to enjoy it. After attempting it for the first time last night I think there are a few changes I would make. First, I’d nix the water altogether. It was a bit thin for my taste. Second, I think I would use a full cup or more of coconut milk. And I might try adding some lemongrass paste.

There are a lot of ways you can adapt this to fit your diet and it’s a great one to try on a cool autumn night. Let me know if you try it!
