Reviews for Black Bean-Pumpkin Soup
"This was a good soup. I did not process the beans and tomatoes because I wanted them whole. I had some leftover ham so I diced it up and added it and it went really well with the soup. I also used 9 cups of broth instead of 3 so we could have it for lunch. This obviously made the soup much thinner but it was still a hearty soup. I will make this often."
"Just made this soup- definitely one of my favorites!!!! I used fresh roasted pumpkin and blended it together with the black beans and tomatoes. Amazing recipe :)"
"By far my favorite soup recipe ever!! I would not change anything about this.For a more detailed review and recipe, I have posted about it on my blog, Healthy Living Revelationshttp://www.healthylivingrevelations.com/2013/09/03/slow-cooker-pumpkin-black-bean-soup/"
"I love this, and never had black bean / pumpkin in a soup before. It will be a repeat for sure for me."
"I found this a bit bland, and agree with a previous review that I did not taste the pumpkin. Added a bit more ground cumin and a sprinkle of chili powder to my leftovers. We'll see if the flavor improves!"
