I whipped up this satisfying soup last Thanksgiving for my family, and everyone was crazy about it! Even my brother, who is one of the pickiest eaters I know, asked for seconds. -Kimberly Knepper, Euless, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2013

I have made this soup for Thanksgiving since receiving my Oct/Nov 2000 issue. However, I make my vegie broth using vegetable bullion paste and make it a tiny bit strong...then I omit the salt and honey and use half and half instead of the evaporated milk. For a thicker soup I reduce the broth liquid by 1/2 a cup.

Really is the best pumpkin soup recipe! I didn't have that many muchrooms (about half) so made up the difference with grated parsnips and added a very little ground ginger too. Great! :-)

This was too sweet for me. I think using real pumpkin instead of canned pumpkin could make a difference.

My family absolutely loves this soup. It is very savory. I add a little extra curry powder to mine.

I found this recipe a few years ago, and it has become part of our Prime Rib Christmas dinner. So simple and so fantastic. I get rave reviews from all holiday guests and have started making it in double batches because EVERYONE wants to take some home. One of my best finds.
