Pumpkin and Black bean soup

Well I thought I was back but we have gone to 5 day a week till Feb. and being out of town does not give me much time to cook. We have been cooking some of our favorites when I have been home so not many new stuff to post. This is one we have seen on a good many blogs out there and we gave this one a try and it was pretty good. It has been cold latley and this was a good new one for us with some good french bread.

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion finely chopped
3 cups vegetable stock(didn't have any so used chicken)
1 can diced tomatoes not drained
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
2 cans pumpkin puree
1 can corn drained
1 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon curry powder (as we are not as accustomed to curry we used half)
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper ( we do like this and added a little more)
salt to taste
we used cilantro as a garnish.
Heat soup pot add oil when hot
add onion and saute about 5 minutes till clear
add broth, tomatoes,black beans,pumpkin and corn
bring to a boil
reduce to med heat and stir in cream slowly and then add cumin,cayenne and salt to taste.
Simmer for 5 minutes adjust seasonings and serve.
Did not take long to cook.
