soup and stuff

pumpkin soup ::
cut up large pumpkin into 4 pieces and roast in oven until a knife inserts easily.
cut away skin and hard fleshy bits , chunky cut and place into large pan on oven.
add 1/2 tsp of each - cumin ground, corrainder leaves, corrainder ground, ginger, mixed spice, clove, italian spices, cajun spices. 1tsp mince garlic.
add 3 cups water, and simmer 30 min or so until bubbly. with a potatoe masher or fork roughly mash up pumpkin bits into soup making a thick texture. simmer 20 more min or so until spices fragrant. add 1 cup thick cream and reheat gently. serve with fresh buttermilk yeast rolls ( my recipe is here ).
