Curry Pumpkin Soup with Mixed Herb and Sea Salt Focaccia.

There is a certain someone in our house who has said in the past that soup is a "lunch food." The way I make it a dinner food is to add some hearty homemade bread and all is good. 

None of us, except Nick, really like pumpkin all that much. 

We have four of them in the cupboard at the moment - well three now after the soup. 

This was originally a recipe for curry pumpkin and chickpea soup. It has all that in it - except a lot more curry powder than would normally be in a curry pumpkin soup - to hide the fact that it's pumpkin. 

The bread is a lovely focaccia bread recipe that I used more than once with fantastic results. 

Soup and bread - a perfect winter dinner.
