Seasonal Eating: Ode to the Local Fall Pumpkin

Don't call us the Grinches of Halloween just because we eat our pumpkin rather than prop it up as a doorstop decoration. Actually, we're on a mission to resurrect the reputation of the poor pumpkin.

Ooh, yum, Marthe B.! I invented a soup with onions sauteed in garlic and olive oil, cook the fresh pumpkin in chunks, in the olive oil, added corn (off-the-cob), then vegetable stock after the pumpkin was cooked to carmelization and simmer all together for a few minutes. I like things slightly sour, so I put in some vinegar, but most people wouldn't, I guess. I cant remember what other herbs/spices I put in this soup. Maybe for a change, I left it at onions and garlic. What spices and herbs do you put in your pumpkin soup, Marthe B.?
