Description

A mere teaspoon of curry powder (and a pinch of nutmeg) is all that's needed to impart this soup with incredible Far Eastern flavors -- and your kitchen with heady aromas. Pumpkin combines beautifully with these spices and purees to a velvety consistency, without having to add any cream at all. The soup is best when garnished with crisped croutons, which take just a couple of minutes to prepare.

    1. Heat the butter in a saucepan and saute the onion and garlic with the bay leaf until they become very soft. Add the pumpkin cubes, curry powder, and nutmeg. Mix well.
