"Another pumpkin soup recipe" Pets in this description you DON"T nearly do this recipe JUSTICE!!!!! Hubby made two of these on the same day with a pumpkin each, one is exactly as written and the other he added piri piri to kick it up a notch, he then had visitors to lunch and they not only raved about it but also wanted the recipe. (they ate the non spicy one) I've just been enjoying the spicy one for dinner ( but also had a taste of the other) and guess what I'm taking to work for lunch tomorrow! This is NOT "just another soup" it has buckets of flavour and we are lovin' it !!!! Thanks !!!

This is a really nice pumpkin soup recipe! Just enough spice, creamy pumpkin flavor with the citrusy tang added. Yum! I scaled it down to ~3 servings, which seemed to work ok, and I only had lime, so I used that instead of lemon. Reminded me a bit of a thai soup - that yummy curry squash flavor. Thanks!

A truly divine pumpkin soup and a perfect light meal on a chilly night -- even our Brazilian exchange student wolfed it down. I used a butternut pumpkin (Australians say pumpkin rather than squash), a Granny Smith apple, 1 1/2 litres of chicken stock and the juice of a lemon. I was out of cayenne, so subbed chilli powder. Garnished with coriander and thick yogurt. This is a keeper.

I'm sitting here eating this right now. It's good on a cold winters day, with just enough spice to allow the pumpkin flavour to come through. The only change I made was to add 3 sticks of celery that would have gone to waste otherwise.I made a double lot and will freeze it, because I love home made soup.

This is a great spicy soup. The lemon juice is a nice addition. I've never had apple in my pumpkin soup before but it added a nice sweetness to this soup. Thanks!

I really like pumpkin and knew I would enjoy this. I make something similar with butternut squash, but this was really good with pumpkin. I did not add the apple and skipped the coriander. The flavor was still great. I am used to eating pumpkin in pie and sweet, but this was a great flavor and the spices were perfect. I used my hand held blender and it pureed beautifully.
