Creamy curried pumpkin soup

    A deliciously creamy and lightly spiced soup. Change the level of spiciness by adjusting the amount of curry powder. You can also make this soup creamier by using double cream instead of single. Serve with fresh crusty bread. The perfect winter warmer.

    Found this recipe so thought I would try it with the pumpkins left off Halloween.Absolutely gorgeous.  -  02 Nov 2014


    I bought a pumpin at the farmer's market for making pie & seeds, but found this recipe on a "quick meal" search & thought, "What the hey? Sounds healthy & the ratings are great." SO>>> I followed other reviewers & added about 1/4 Cup of food processed onions to the bubbling butter, then did the recipe as followed. Added about 1 cup of shredded chicken to it & used Coconut milk instead of the 1/2 & 1/2, AND I used Indian Curry which made it near impossible for my children to feed their bodies so wonderfully as my hubby & me! Made wheat rolls & topped the soup with the seeds & we were so satisfied, in & out! This is a great, warm up your insides & get your nose running soup! So good for you too! Thank you for this addition to my fave site! Now this recipe card sits in front row in my soup slot in the recipe box!!!  -  05 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    really good and creamy. Sauted minced onions with the butter, used coconut milk instead of half-n-half, and added cumin. will make this again.  -  11 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
