A deliciously creamy pumpkin soup that is flavoured with fresh thyme, garlic and peppercorns. Finishing with cream brings out the sweet flavour of the pumpkin.
Make this pumpkin soup 100% vegetarian by using vegetable stock or water instead of the chicken stock.
Made it healthier. This soup is not only easy to make, but incredibly good! I didn't have cream - just used what I had on hand - skimmed milk. flavour was still great and felt better because it was less fattening. - 24 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. We tried this soup and even the skeptics loved it! My husband had to make a second batch just to get some! It's very savoury, very creamy. Try using 1/2 chicken stock and 1/2 veg stock. Nice variation. - 24 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This was great! A bit of nutmeg really sets the flavours off, but do it at the end and just add small amounts at a time or else it will overpower the soup. I would also recommend adding an extra clove garlic as it really brings out a bit more flavour. Serve this with a good quality french stick (should be very hard on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside). - 24 Jul 2008
