    Chef Kate's Note:

    Another lovely recipe from Rob Oliver. this soup ups the ante on the Australian classic. Two cups of canned pureed pumpkin can be used in place of fresh pumpkin; vegetable stock can replace the chicken stock. Also, to cut down on fat, I use lite coconut milk.

      Wow - this soup is awesome! Can be done much sooner than specified, I diced the potato fairly small and only simmered for 15 minutes instead of the 30-40 indicated; on a night when I needed dinner done quickly, this was a great choice. I used canned pumpkin, fat free chicken broth and lite coconut milk, which made the soup light in calories too! All in all, really great soup that I plan to make again now that cooler weather is near.

      To quote Peter J, this soup has a "magic blend of flavors" that my DH and I found a refreshing and festive change. I used the canned pureed pumpkin and put a dash of Amarula liqueur in the cream garnish. My photo wasn't as good as Peter J's, so I'll try again next time -- I think the cream got away from me this time!
