We love soup in our home, and I especially am a fan of creamy-style soups. This Thanksgiving-inspired dish has all the traditional smells that fill the air during the holiday season. You could also make this with butternut squash if desired. —Jenn Tidwell, Fair Oaks, California
This golden-toned soup is wonderfully warming on crisp autumn days. "Unlike most creamy pumpkin soups, this one is especially hearty, with additional vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and corn," notes Joan Conover, Easton, Pennsylvania. "For fun autumn flair, serve the soup in hollowed-out pumpkin shells. My boys love it that way."
Looking for something new to beat dinnertime doldrums? Try my pumpkin soup! A touch of curry powder lends an aromatic spiced appeal while whipping cream gives the soup its silky texture.—Debbie Flocco, Norristown, Pennsylvania
If you like curry, you'll love this unique soup from Kathy Hill of Catlettsburg, Kentucky. She generously flavors it with that spice, as well as garlic, red pepper flakes and coriander. For extra flair, serve each hot bowlful with a dollop of sour cream.
