This is so quick and easy. My family liked the texture that the pumpkin added to the soup. I did change up the recipe by adding red curry paste, using brown sugar instead of regular, a dash of chilli powder, some crushed red pepper and by adding some basil. For some protein to make the meal more complete, I added 2 cans of black-eyed peas. The recipe is good but, a little bland. This could also be great with some Polish Sausage added.
