Pacific Giant Pumpkin Soup

This pumpkin makes the best soup. 
Better than butternut Squash. 
Of course pumpkin is a squash. All squashes and pumpkins aren't created equal. 

I garnish my squash soup with strawberry homemade preserves. Some use cream or sour cream or yogurt even. 

This soup is made with pumpkin 5 cups steamed
Celery and 1/2 onion, 1 carrot, 5 florets cauliflower, vegetable broth, hot pepper flakes and curry powder with salt and pepper. 
I cook ingredients until softish then purée until smooth. 

I keep it warm all day in a thick black bean pot and serve with a thick slice of walnut cranberry artisan bread. 
And salad......

Great winter fare.
