This is a great base to work with. I doubled the batch, added crushed garlic, 2Tbsp, in the last stages of browning the onions, and 1/4 tsp of curry powder and 1/4 tsp of tarragon while simmering the pumpkin & potato. When serving I added about a Tbsp of grated gruyere to each bowl. This will become a staple in our fall soup selections. When I make this again, I'm going to simmer the pumpkin in the stock and add the milk with the sauted leeks. While it may give the pumpkin a more prominant flavor - which is not a bad thing - it should reduce the chance of scorching the milk and ease the cleaning of the pot. Thanks for posting.

This is the first time I made pumpkin soup and it turned out great! I would probably use less chicken stock next time (maybe just 2 cups) for a thicker consistency. Make sure to season with a lot of black pepper! :)

We really enjoyed this hearty, savory soup! Because we used canned pumpkin I simply boiled the potatoes in a half water-half milk mixture and mashed the pumpkin into the potatoes when they had softened. I added the onion with the chicken stock and waited to add the sauteed leeks until the very end. We thought the soup benefited from a tsp. of oregano and some garlic powder. This is a great soup on a cold night!
