One glimpse of this za'atar-oil-flecked beauty and I knew I had to try it as soon as possible, so off I set to the store with hopes that my search for a packet of za'atar — a Middle Eastern spice blend comprising oregano, thyme, sesame seeds, and sumac — wouldn't be found futile. Thankfully, Spicely came to my rescue, no specialty store required; it even came in a conveniently smaller package to boot, a boon to those looking to waste less in the kitchen.
And to answer the burning question: yes, this soup was everything I wished for and more. Well-balanced, velvety smooth, and aesthetically appealing thanks to a swirl of za'atar oil, this tangerine-hued soup is a real winner.

Rich in flavor yet light on the butter and cream, curried pumpkin soup is an easy seasonal starter or a simple entrée that can be stored in the fridge and reheated for a fast and easy meal. This particular pumpkin soup has an Indian twist with the addition of ginger, curry powder, and coconut milk; however, it is not overwhelmingly spicy or palate-burning.
While you might want to forgo using fresh pumpkin in baked goods, it's a must when making homemade pumpkin soup. Yes, it takes a while for the pumpkin to roast, but once the gourd is cooked through, the soup comes together in no time. Plus, roasting real pumpkin lets you reserve the pumpkin seeds and toast them for the topping.
The pumpkin makes the soup thick, fibrous, and slightly sweet, while the freshly toasted pumpkin seeds are fun to munch on. The Indian curry and fresh ginger make this soup plenty spicy, and a dash of cayenne heightens the fiery burn. The fluffy dollop of Greek yogurt gives the soup a tart bite and mellows out the spice. Depending on how much parsley you use, you can consider it a "dose" of green vegetables. I like a large handful, which wilts into an easy-to-chew, spinach-like texture. Learn how to make it.
Nothing beats a bowl of hot soup on a Fall day. Add the warming spice mixture of curry to the pot, and your bowl will offer extra metabolic-boosting powers. I recently made a pot of creamy and thick butternut squash soup with curry and coconut milk that was warming but also subtly sweet.
