    Lalaloula's Note:

    My sis and me came up with this soup one day, cause we had to use up some fresh basil so that it would not go to waste. Its an unusual combination, but very tasty. Spicy and warming with a fresh green touch from the basil. I hope youll enjoy it! :) You may use any pumpkin/squash you like, but please note that hokkaido squash has an edible peel. If your squash does not, make sure to peel it.

      WOW great soup I used butternut pumpkin (ended up with 1.5k of pumpkin) so upped the rest of the ingredients by half again (used 7 teaspoons of a hot madrass curry). The DS and I enjoyed this as our dinner (the DS polished of 2 large bowls and me 1 and still had 8 cups worth left over for the freezer) along with Bacon Scones. Thank you Lalaloula for a great pumpkin soup, made for Everyday a Holiday.

      I followed Andi's lead and used canned pumpkin. It really made this soup easy to put together for dinner guests. Since I was using canned pumpkin, I opted to use vegetable stock for additional flavor. The curry adds a nice zip. Everyone really enjoyed it. I may add a dollop of plain yogurt to the center next time around. Made for *Soups On* in the Diabetic Forum.
