Better than it sounds
What can I say, a lot of the soups I make tend to turn out on the spicy side and this is no different. I had a huge pumpkin leftover from Halloween and you can only make so much bread. I guess you could substitute the canned pumpkin and I would guess about two cans to substitue but I actually have know idea how much pumpkin I actually used. I just eyeballed it and adjusted it.
Soften the pumpkin by roasting or boiling like you are making mashed potatoes.
Add oil to soup pot. Add onions garlic and ginger. Cook 5 minutes stir a lot. Add coriander turmeric and red pepper. Cook a couple minutes and add pumpkin and stock. Bring to boil and then simmer for half.
Puree thick parts with some liquid in blender. Dont overfill blender as it can erupt like a volcano. Return soup to pan. Add sesame seeds, salt and pepper and cilantro. Simmer for half hour and it's ready.
