The combination of peanut butter and cream, makes this unusual soup very rich. It goes together in a snap for an elegant first course. A hollowed out fresh pumpkin shell makes a unique serving tureen

I used a whole can of full fat coconut milk, 2 cups LESS stock and perhaps LESS peanut butter (chunky) with GREAT RESULTS. Just what I was hunting for! I have also made this with additions of chickpeas and also with curry pastes. So filling without filling you out!

Excellent! I used 1/2 cup low fat peanut butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 4 cups chicken stock rather than 5 vegetable, and one can of fat-free evaporated cream. It turned out wonderful. My DH really enjoyed it and couldn't quite identify the peanut butter taste. To him it tasted like a soup cooked out over an open fire. This is a keeper. Thanks, Mirj.

Sumptuous, thick texture. The balance between pumpkin and pb is perfect. I had to spice it up alot. Since I didn't have celery, I threw in a littl curry powder because it smelled like celery. I think nonfat evaporated milk could easily be used instead of the cream. My husband tends to cal my soups "gulag soups". He couldn't with this one! And....he went back for a second bowl. Yummy good.
