Healthy and yummy winter soup. I pureed mine with stick blender and put cheese on top. Made for ZWT 7.
This is a nice twist on a traditional vegetable soup. Easy to put together and very filling. I used olive oil instead of butter and less than a tablespoon in total. I also used a combination of fat free half-and-half and milk instead of cream, which worked fine and lowered the calories and fat in the recipe. Made for Photo Tag and much enjoyed.
This is so delicious, and as with many soups it is even better on the second day. Everyone was a bit skeptical about the ingredient combination, but they all came back for seconds and thirds! This is a very kid-friendly recipe as well. I followed the recipe as directed with the exception of using milk for the whipping cream as I don't tend to keep cream around. It still had a nice creamy texture, likely due to the pumpkin. What's funny is everyone tasted something different in this: I tasted a hint of curry (??), DH tasted classic veggie soup, and DM raved about the pumpkin flavor. I will absolutely make this again; it is a perfect warming fall meal! Thanks for posting. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
