Curried Pumpkin Apple Soup

I still have a couple of uncarved pumpkins hanging around since Hallowe'en! With the holidays around the corner, I decided it's time to lose the pumpkin display and start consuming these beauties in some delicious recipes. One of my favourite ways to enjoy pumpkin is to purée it into a soup and add flavour with Arvinda's Curry Masala.

This is a recipe repost from many years ago from A Teaspoon of Turmeric. After every Hallowe'en, we seem to always get a couple of requests for this recipe, which is why I wanted to share it.

A beautiful presentation, short ingredient list and a chock full of curry flavour, nothing is deterring you from making this hearty soup to warm you up.
