I love pumpkin soup and this was a good one. I doubled the curry because I like a little stronger flavor. Rich, and soooo incredibly good. Very, very easy to make. Even my husband who was very hesitant gave it a thumbs up. Thanks Nurse Di.
I am not a big fan of Pumpkin Soups, but I do like it Curried and this has such a high rating. This was good and I will keep it at hand when required! My 4 yr old requested pumpkin soup to use up a Kent Pumpkin. As the fresh pumpkin is much more watery than canned I adjusted by only putting 400ml stock, 375ml ev. milk, twice the pumpkin and I upped the curry to 2tsp which was probably 1/2tsp too much for us. I omitted the nutmeg as I didn't have any. Oh and garnished with greek style yogurt and served with Cheesy Rolls this meal is great rather than just good.
This is a wonderful recipe. I used light margarine and fat free evaporated milk to fit my plan and I don't think it took anything away. Also, I calculated this soup to roughly one point per serving for any Weight Watchers out there. Thanks for posting.
