  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and leek in melted butter until onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, pumpkin puree, curry powder, salt, white pepper, ground ginger, and bay leaf to onion mixture; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat to cool. Pour broth mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Return pureed mixture to pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Gradually stir half-and-half into pumpkin mixture; cook until soup is heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.

I substituted two large shallots for the leek. My husband said it was the best soup he had ever tasted, better than any fancy restaurant.

Wonderful. and tasty. My husband loved it. Substituted soft steamed cauliflower for leeks and unsweetened coconut milk for half and half. Did not purée as we prefer soup with texture. Used an...
