Spiced Pumpkin Soup

October 4, 2013

Spiced pumpkin soup from Mirch Masala is a comforting meal for fall.  Tender roasted pumpkin is pureed with rich spices, onion and garlic to create a thick and velvety soup.  For a vegan version of this recipe, substitute the milk for cashew cream or coconut milk.  This soup is great as a light dinner or a starter course for a dinner party.
