    Mia in Germany's Note:

    This is a Greek version of pumpkin soup. Submitted for ZWT 6. The recipe says either water or stock, but I prefer stock because with water it's a bit bland. Also I add some more cinnamon and allspice after pureeing and adding stock and yoghurt, but that's personal preference.

      This was really excellent!
      My daughter told me that the house was smelling wornderful!
      The recipe is perfect as roasting spices and vegetables this gives a special and rich taste to the soup. Also the yogurt addition worked well: important is not bringing it to boil!
      Thanks a lot Mia it was a pleasure using my pumpkins from the garden for your soup!

      I made this soup without the leeks as I did not have any and it was delicious! We will be enjoying this again soon.
