      I loved the lime + coconut combination in this recipe. The squash made the curry taste even richer. Next time I make this I will add even more jalapeno and maybe some chopped peanuts on top!

      Delicious! I had garbanzo beans in the freezer, kept seeing "pumpkin recipes" on the home page of Zaar, so I picked up some pumpkin. This recipe was great. I used full fat coconut milk, since that's what I had. It was a very rich soup that way. And I hadn't realized I was out of ground coriander, I'll bet it's even better with that added flavor. Otherwise I doubled the recipe and followed the directions as is. The soup is very quick to put together. My husband and I enjoyed it very much, my oldest ate around the pumpkin and liked the flavor. The two younger kids weren't interested (anything with yellow vegetables is still off limits, unfortunately).

      It was an interesting soup but my gang didn't like it. I did make a couple changes - didn't have garbanzo beans so used black beans and instead of just 1/4 cup of spinach I used probably 4 cups and so that new combo gave the soup a murky unappealing grey color. I enjoyed the combination of flavors.
