Super easy and very tasty! I was expecting it to be more sweet, so I added two more teaspoons of brown sugar.
Tried this soup and it was a little bland, so I added a little more brown sugar (2 Tbls) and garnished with a sprinkle of raisins and Pumpkin Flax granola...added just the right amount of sweetness to this soup..also added about 5 ground baby carrots when I sauted the onion..also used pumpkin spice instead of just nutmeg..was yummy!
Just made it ahead of time for Thanksgiving & it came out so DELICIOUS! I needed to double the recipe but also added extra spices: approx a 1/2t. of cinnamon, extra nutmeg, dash of cayenne pepper & cloves. All to taste really. I thought it was alittle bland after addiing the cream & I thinkened it with flour & water paste since it was also not as thick as I like. I added another can of pumpkin to give it more pumpkin flavor. And viola! I made a butternut squash soup last year which was great but this came out even better!
I really liked this soup. I used 1 tbsp honey instead of the brown sugar and added cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice as well. The taste was so unique that I can't describe it, but it was delicious. The pumpkin is not very strong. What comes through the most is a creamy consistency. I will definitely be making this again.
I happened to have all the ingredients that this recipe called for and was in the mood for soup, so I tried it out with several of the suggestions below. I used 3 Tbsp of flour to thicken it up, 1 Tbsp of brown sugar (it was a bit too sweet for me, maybe I'll try 1/2 Tbsp next time) and added 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (when am I going to use this again?). It's delicious! It somewhat reminds me of this cream of pumpkin soup that I used to order from Earth, Wind and Flour when I was working with my sister many years ago.
