Easy Pumpkin Soup with Curry is a recipe I usually only make during the fall. It's a lighter pumpkin soup that gets its creaminess from the pumpkin and evaporated milk. Honey brings out the sweetness of the pumpkin.
Easy Pumpkin Soup with Curry

Add flour and curry powder and mix until blended.
Gradually add the broth. Bring to a boil; cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Add the pumpkin, evaporated milk, honey, salt, pepper, and nutmeg; cook until heated through.
