* In a hot pan with olive oil, cook onions, ginger and pumpkin cubes. Add in the broth and curry powder and simmer for another 5 minutes. Discard ginger.

* In a blender, place cooked pumpkin cubes and some of the broth. Purée until smooth. Add in the cream and blend well. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer into the pumpkin soup bowl.

Serve and add some more cream, if desired.
