Wow - this soup is awesome! Can be done much sooner than specified, I diced the potato fairly small and only simmered for 15 minutes instead of the 30-40 indicated; on a night when I needed dinner done quickly, this was a great choice. I used canned pumpkin, fat free chicken broth and lite coconut milk, which made the soup light in calories too! All in all, really great soup that I plan to make again now that cooler weather is near.
To quote Peter J, this soup has a "magic blend of flavors" that my DH and I found a refreshing and festive change. I used the canned pureed pumpkin and put a dash of Amarula liqueur in the cream garnish. My photo wasn't as good as Peter J's, so I'll try again next time -- I think the cream got away from me this time!
it tastes really good with crackers in it.
Such a wonderful and creamy soup with a magic blend of flavours! I used light coconut milk as well along with butternut pumpkin which worked fantastically. Unfortunately I took the photo just after pouring the cream in, it looked so much better after swirling while eating but it was too good to delay for another shot, maybe next time!
