    Chuck it in a blender with salt and garlic and some sauted onion and a bit of curry powder/paste and some stock.

    not exactly pumpkin soup, but I do it like this:

    (typing with babe in arms so i apologise now for mistakes and grammer!)

    lightly fry a chopped onion and some garlic in a little oil. throw in some pumpkin, sweet potato, potato, and carrot cook for a few mins. add a fewcups of stock (chicken or veg) boil until its all soft enough to blend. blend it up add a cup of milk and salt pepper to taste. the milk makes its taste creamy. yummmeee!!

    Forgot to say I like to chuck a dollop of cream (or even yogurt) in as I serve it.

    for next time, if you dry roast the pumpkin instead of steaming it, it adds more flavour. yummy

    I like to make too much roast pumpkin when I make a roast so that I can use the leftovers for soup *drools*

    mashing is fine, add some stock if it's still a bit lumpy We regularly just have ours mashed when I can't be bothered cleaning the blender!!!

    The one i made the other day was brown onion, bacon & zucchini, boil up some pumpkin in chicken stock, then add in all the pre-cooked stuff until the pumpkin is soft and the water is basically gone then throw in a blender.. even DP ate it and DD2 went back for 2 bowls

    Oh never made pumpkin soup sounds easy, how much pumpkin do you need to make a big batch?

    The spiced thai one sounds yummo, is it easy?

    Just saw this Feeb - it is super easy but I have just realised that there is a page torn out of my recipe book and it is that one recipe Waaahhh - will chase it up but if anyone has the The Instant Cook book by Donna Hay it is in there and they might be able to post it!

    I cook a whole butternut pumpkin, about 1/2 a smallish QLD Blue, a couple of small potatoes and a small sweet potato. I then fry an onion or two (depending on how much pumpkin there is) and while frying I add some nutmeg to it and sort of caramelise it. Then I blend it all up and throw it in the slow cooker along with some nutmeg, salt, pepper and some cooked bacon pieces.

    I add a small amount of cream to the bowls when serving and some nice crusty bread from the bakery. Yum!

    I do this, with added nutmeg and Ginger, finished with a dollop of cream and some coriander.
