Persian's notes:-

I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic with the onion.

I first cooked the onion and garlic and then I added the stock and the raw pumpkin altogether. Simmer 30 minutes.

It goes soft easily and just mash it up with the hand held old style potato masher. Then add the tomatoes, maple syrup etc as per recipe.

At the end I added 3/4 cup low fat soy milk re heated without boiling.

Yummy and creamy soup!
