I made and enjoyed this soup today.  I know not many have Volcanoes and or Potjies but there is no reason a standard camp oven couldnt be substituted.  I would usually boil the pumpkin from the start in the stock but feel cooking it on a grill gave it a very nice flavour, maybe it was jsut a good pumpkin.  I bought it on the way home from tumut at a small country market and it was supposed homegrown.

As usual the ingredients are on the drop down part underneath the slide show.

Aart - has full cream in it  and sour cream on it  Cheesy I could think of something better but only just a tad   Roll Eyes  I cheated on the bread and used a "damper mix" given to me by my friend Jenny who lives near Dubbo and has a flour mill and shop which sells all kinds of bready stuff.  To be honest I wasnt that thrilled with it but thought it filled the photo nicely.

Daryl - its even better this morning and lets face it if you were camping and had coals for breakfast cooking you could just throw the pumpkin in or on the grill.  I am thinking maybe even just foil over it if you didnt have the "lid" and over a slow fire would work also.  I was tempted to throw some gum leaves over the heat breads  Cheesy

I went shopping and came home prepared to cook up from about four recipes but didnt think the sour cream would go with the Thai one.  

I will make it another time it was simply pumpkin, stock, Thai red curry starting with l teaspoon and more later to suit your taste and a can of coconut cream.  My mind tells me that would be great but I couldnt picture eating it with the sour cream so I went for the more traditional curry recipe so I didnt waste the sour cream.  

I have frozen half of it so it will be interesting to see how it reconstitutes up the track.

With the cooler weather about to descend, pumpkin soup recipes come to the fore once again.

Thanks for posting such a  delish version Carolyn.

Is there a way to 'save to computer' or some such so I can watch the video/s again if I don't have internet connection?

Finally got around to giving this recipe a try. 
Thanks Carolyn!
  The males LOVED it!


I used a huge butternut pumpkin, roasted in two batches, and the recipe filled a 4.5qt (5lt) camp oven
The pre-roasting of the pumpkin and the spices certainly adds a lovely kick.

We had 2 ladle fulls each for first course and followed it with some roasted chicken thighs and steamed vege.
I put 3 tubs of soup in the freezer so this recipe serves 8 - 12, depending on bowl size/appetite
