You mentioned onion in step 2, but it wasn't included in list of ingredients, so I added 1 small diced onion. I didn't add the chicken because some of us are vegetarian, (So I guess that changes the name of the soup for me). Some one else in family prefers smooth soups, so I blended it. DELICIOUS. I realise I made a few changes, but the flavour was terrific. Nice Thai type flavour, and terrific color with the capsicum and pumpkin. I am a collector of pumpkin soup recipes, this one will be used frequently.
