Turkey Wild Rice Pumpkin Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by PSU Lioness

I found this recipe in The Favorite Brand Names Cookbook and posted it before trying it. After I made it, I am glad that I posted. I have the ingredient listing below as the book called for, but I wound up adding an extra half cup of cream after a reader suggested that it was neither a broth nor cream soup and I thought it rounded it out nicely. I also followed the advice of another reviewer and used Pumpkin Pie Filling instead of solid pack pumpkin and then skipped the cinnamon and I thought it was great. I hope you enjoy it! (PS - I freezes and thaws pretty good. I had it frozen for 5 months and it held up well when I reheated it)

Did not care for this at all. Extremely thin, neither broth nor cream. To say the flavor was subtle is reaching. Strange after-bite. I loved all the components, but unhappily, I felt it was a waste of lovely ingredients and precious time, two big sins in my culinary bible! But one cook's meat is another cooks poison, and this is just one kitchenho's opinion!
