What you do: 

1) Heat the oil in the pan and saute the onions until translucent. Stir in the red pepper flakes and curry powder and combine ingredients for about 1 minute. Add the pumpkin and squash, then add the stock.2) Bring to a boil, cover, and lower heat to a simmer. Cook for about 40 minutes, or until the pumpkin and squash are soft.3) Add the ground star anise to the soup and cook for about 5 to 10 minutes more, or until the flavors have melded.4) Mash the soup before serving and add a dollop of vegan sour cream.
The soup is great plain, or can be served over rice. Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes to your desired heat.
