Roasted Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

I love soup!!!  And I have never made anything with real pumpkin.  Therefore, last time I went to the farmer’s market I decided to buy one.  For some reason I was really nervous about cooking with a real pumpkin, but it was so easy!  Just like squash, except bigger.  I don’t know what else I am going to make with pumpkin.  But, I definitely am going to use it more this fall!

This soup was really great.  The coconut really mellows it out.  I think next time I will not add the coconut milk.  I liked it better before I added the coconut milk, because it was spicier.  Now I know.  But if I make it for my family I will need to add the coconut milk, because they can’t handle spicy food like me.
