Here's a soup recipe that's a favorite around here:

I made this recipe up to try to recreate a soup we love at a restaurant. It's not really close, but it came out good just the same and is a family favorite, especially for the fall.

We have pumpkins that seem different here, they are not as orange in the skin, thicker in the meat. (maybe there's another name for it in the US?)

So, in a big pot of water toss in:

All the orange veggies: pumpkin, butternut (or any other kind) squash, sweet potato and carrots.
Then, toss in the onions and the garlic.

Then add: salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper (be generous, you want a bite in this soup, or you can use a fresh hot pepper), a generous dash of turmeric, lemon or lime juice (start with a few tablespoons), all to taste.

Boil until tender, then puree the whole batch (I use a hand blender thing but you could also put it in a blender).

Stir in: coconut milk to taste (start with a small amount. I use about two cups per pot of soup (I buy it in a carton and then I freeze the rest in portions to use at a later time).
Then, add more salt or cayenne to taste.

Last: stir in dill.

The color turns out to be such a beautiful and bright shade of orange and the bits of dill make it so beautiful as well. It's an interesting blend and layer of tastes. If you want to get fancy, you can put some drops of creamy coconut milk on the top with a sprig of fresh dill to garnish before you serve.
