This comforting soup is wonderfully warming on an autumn day, and the subtle curry flavor lets the pumpkin star. My family really enjoy dishes like this that have a delightful down-home flavor.—Eleanor Dunbar, Peoria, Illinois

"Very tasty. We used fresh pumpkin from our garden (making sure to squeeze out the extra water) and it worked fine. Tastes great with a dollop of sour cream, too!"

"Very easy recipe. I enjoyed it very much and nice flavor for fall. I also added another tsp. of sugar and used heavy cream. A great soup for a gathering of friends."

"Very tasty. I did add a sprinkle of cinnamon. I did not add the salt, and I used 1% milk. It was delicious! Next time I will use a touch less of the curry. Oh - I only used around a 1/4 of an onion, too."

"Very bland. Added a ton of kosher salt and we still didn't finish it. I will not make this again."
