I just love pumpkin soup - any time of year. You know sometimes even in hot months you need a nice bowl of comfort. I made this on one of the cooler days we had this summer (in the high 70's) but it was raining and thundering like the end of the world. The scent of pumpkin, ginger and cinnamon soothed my frazzled nerves (from the thunder and lightning) as if it were aromatherapy. I finished making this as the worst of the storm passed and it was just raining. I curled up on the sun porch and just watched the rain and enjoyed this wonderful soup. It didn't matter that it was summer, you can make this on a rainy, stormy day too.
I love cream soups. This one is my favorite!
This was the perfect start to our Thanksgiving dinner! I made as directed except I added 1 cup applesauce and 2 Tblsp. brown sugar, and I subbed 1 cup of half and half for the milk. Before serving, I added a dollup of sour cream to each bowl. Delicious! Thanks Kree, everyone raved about it.
Although the soup had a good flavor, it was much too watery. I will use much less chicken broth next time to make the soup creamier.
This soup is great! My boyfriend ate two bowls worth and I thought he wouldn't like it.
Wow, yeah this is good. I made the puree myself from leftover pumpkin from Halloween last year... I used rice milk instead of regular milk, and it's just great!!
I enjoyed this soup alot. I had never tried pumpkin soup before. What a treat! I live in Minnesota and the temps are currently below zero so this soup made a perfect dinner tonight. I did not puree the onion mixture and I probably should have. Next time I might just leave the onion out altogether. I also substituted nutmeg for ginger. I used skim milk and it was great....a healthy dish. I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch! Edit note: This is really good made with apple juice in place of some of the chicken broth. A friend suggested I try that.
This is a wonderful "comfort" soup for cool/cold nights, and living in Minnesota I plan on LOTS of servings of this. Super taste!
