Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



This recipe is so easy!!!! This was my first time trying pumpkin soup and I really enjoyed it! I think I used to much onion or didn't let it cook long enough (like another reviewer said) and I still liked it. I'm the only pumpkin eater in the house (unless it's pumpkin muffins) so I'll freeze the leftovers for a quick lunch!!!! Can;t wait to try some of the modifications other reviewers suggested! No gluten - which is great!!! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Perfect Fall Meal

I tried something similar to this in Australia. I searched for years to try find like what I had tasted. After many trail and error, endured by my family, LOL, I have found the best tasting Pumpkin soup in the states!!

Easy enough

I think that I added too much brown sugar. A little too sweet for a soup....(my fault) yet, I liked it. Next time, I won't be so heavy handed on the ingredients....:)

Not Good

My family and I LOVE pumpkin but we all disliked this soup. Can't pinpoint it but it just didn't taste right.
