    Lorrie in Montreal's Note:

    Spicy and satisfying soup! Olive oil can be cut back to a drizzle for those looking to lighten their fat intake. NOTE:If using curry powder...replace basil with cilantro or parsley.

      A wonderful soup that I had to substitute a few ingredients on! I thought I had everything, and then realised that I had no corn or green, I added a couple of tomatoes and also some extra squash and some pumpkin! We LOVED the cajun seasoning with the ginger, I also added a swirl of cajun seasoning on top with some fresh parsley! I pureed this soup and the texture was wonderful and thick, almost creamy! What makes this so tasty and subtly spicy is the ginger - do NOT leave that out! Great soup and one that I will make again with the corn and the beans. Made for Holiday Tag - thanks Lorrie! FT:-)
