    I love it.  -  03 Oct 2013


    Very nice recipe, but far too salty for my taste. Next time I would not put any salt in it, the stock was salty enough.  -  06 Nov 2016


    For a lighter version of this soup, I copied everything off this recipe except only added 1 Tablespoon of the Heavy Whipping Cream. Really I could have gone without the whipping cream all together. I modified this soup so it would be lighter in both fat and calories. I thought that the flavor and smooth texture was not compromised at all by reducing the whipping cream amount. My husband and I found this almost as good as the gourmet pumpkin soup that we at at Sandals in St.Lucia.  -  11 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
