Pumpkin Rice Laksa Soup
You can use butternut or acorn squash in place of the pumpkin, if you prefer chicken stock in place of vegetable broth.
Serve the soup in warmed bowls or pour it back into the pumpkin shell. If you're going to do that, put the pumpkin shell in the oven to warm it through first. It's a great show-stopper for dinner parties.
