      I made this last night and it was beautiful. The pumpkin soup was silky and smooth and the pistou was just fantastic. I would say that the soup is a 4 star soup, the pumpkin flavour is not very strong but it's lovely with the chili added, it just has a nice little tingle to it. It's the pistou that makes this a 5 in my book - it just compliments the soup beautifully. I did add more almonds than the recipe called for and they stayed quite chunky, but that was lovely with the soup. It's also a very easy soup to make, hardly any chopping and peeling really and it comes together quite quickly. Thank you for posting Pneuma, made for Aussie/Kiwi Swap June 09
