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."

"This was a nice change from the creamy versions. I adjusted the ingredients to use up some things I had on hand, and it worked great! I used about a cup of frozen Cajun style mirepoix (chopped onions, green peppers and celery), a cup of Trager Joe's frozen Roast Corn, I also used a package of frozen Mediterranean style veggies (lightly seasoned cut up carrots, zucchini and potatoes ), and I also added a couple extra seasonings (McCormick's Cuban seasoning and a little Melting Pot Garlic and Wine seasoning). I left out the lima beans since neither of us like them, but think I will add a can of black beans next time (probably Trader Joe's Cuban style). The main reason I gave just four stars was that it needed more seasoning to suit us. Definitely going to make it again!!"

"This soup is delicious! I used edamame instead of lima beans & creamed corn because I didn't have regular. I added extra pepper to give it just a little kick. Very tasty!"

"I have been researching recipes to expand my use of 'the great pumpkin'. This is a wonderful soup--beautiful golden color, wonderful flavor! It does not have a heavy pumpkin flavor as when you do the usual puree of pumpkin type soup. The consumer is more than likely to ask what's in it. For my personal taste, I would add some freshly ground pepper or cayenne to give it just a bit of a kick. This is going in my favorites!"
