    This sounds delicious- and its similar to how i make mine- except I add a tablespoon of red curry paste and I use a bamix to pureeIts so delicious isn’t it!

    I love this soup.
    I also add some chopped red chicory (it’s radicchio, it’s in season right now and I grow it in my garden) in the latest minutes of cooking.

    PS: you have a very nice blog.

    With kids especially, it’s fun to serve pumpkin soup in a pumpkin shell. When you are done dinner, this second pumkin call still be cooked and used to make pumpkin pie or muffins or the likes. Thanks for the recipe.

    I agree with Matthew that this would be great with a hit of curry; but I wonder if that would clash with the thyme?
