Damn this looks good...I am going to try it this weekend...but I just know its going to be yummy so I'm rating it now!
We just ate this for our lunch. I doubled the curry powder and used stock rather than water-I'm so glad I did as I think the flavour would have been lacking otherwise. I think the addition of a little celery along with the onions and a fresh herb to finish would lift this soup further; (fresh coriander would be my choice with the curry flavour). I thinned the soup with a little extra water and served with a dollop of sour cream.
OH BOY!!! We have ourselves a winner here! This could not have been easier or tastier. I added a bit of cream at the end and it worked a treat. I'm pretty sure that based on the moans of pleasure around the table, this one is going to be a regular right through the winter. Made on behalf of the Genies of Gourmet for Zingo, ZWT 5.

I have a couple of Alison Holst books myself, I do enjoy her recipes. This one is no exception, an easily prepared, delicious soup, I had everything I needed in the pantry and it was quickly prepared when I came home. creamy with lots of flavour, I did not add milk or cream, we enjoyed it as was. I used pumpkin (previously cubed and frozen, I like to buy fresh produce and freeze it for later use), and two medium kumara, I added maybe another cup of water halfway through to allow for the extra kumara. The curry powder is a pleasing touch, just there without overpowering. I used a roasted garam masala powder. Thank you for sharing, Helen, made for ZWT 5, Zingo!
