Rich in autumnal flavors, Pumpkin Curry Soup is a robust, seasonal favorite soup. It’s a rich, colorful addition to any fall or winter meal, yet filling enough to make a meal all on its own.

And, a favorite in our house. A special dish I really try to save for Thanksgiving — but rarely succeeded.

When the colors outside my window are bursting with fiery reds, brilliant oranges, and glowing yellows — I can’t resist making a pot of Pumpkin Curry Soup — as a practice run before the big day!
