Creamy Pumpkin Soup (From Australia)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Debbie R.

This recipe is from "Cooking the Australian Way," which says that nearly every family has a version of it. This one sounds good. Haven't made it yet. If you're not looking to hold down fat content or calories, you can double the butter; substitute half-and-half for the evaporated skim milk; and use full-fat sour cream. Use fresh cooked and pureed pumpkin if desired

Thanks Debbie for a great recipe! I used cream rather than the evaporated milk. Followed your direction, however also added 1/2 teaspoon of anis. The next time I make think I'll add a clove of crushed garlic too! Made for ZWT 5.
