  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and leek in melted butter until onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, pumpkin puree, curry powder, salt, white pepper, ground ginger, and bay leaf to onion mixture; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat to cool. Pour broth mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Return pureed mixture to pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Gradually stir half-and-half into pumpkin mixture; cook until soup is heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.

Good flexible recipe! This time I used two onions instead of the onion leek combo. Worked fine. Also nice to replace the half and half with coconut milk.

The texture was wholly unappealing. I used an immersion blender and substituted evaporated milk for the half and half.
