Yummy, I made this for dinner last evening. Didn't have fresh pumpkin so used canned and didn't put in the blender as we like a chunky soup ,soooo left the apple chunky. Very good. Served with a baby green salad.

Yes, I forgot to mention, that you can also use canned pumkin for this recipe to save come time. (I dont have canned pumpkin in my country) I have also experement with canned squash. It's baking now, so if its any good, I will post the recipe here. If not, don't go looking for it. Love you guys!

This recipe was pretty good. It is a much milder tasting soup than one might expect, and I actually ended up doubling the spices to 'kick it up' just a bit. Overall it was a great soup considering the nutritionals.
