Great for the kids too!

AMANDA FLEENER from ALLENTOWN, PA

This recipe is very easy and a bit different in flavors--the kids love the peanut butter. I left out the shallots and marjoram (because I didn't have any). Instead I added coriander for a nice blend.

    A few changes and it was a hit!

    Stacie Mcdonald from Colorado

    After reading the past review. I decided to try it also with a more Thai flare. Used curry instead of the other spices. Added cut up roasted chicken to the pumpkin mixture. After removing from heat, I added coconut milk instead of evaporated milk and threw in cooked brown jasmine rice. Spiced it up with red pepper flakes. I did not put it into a blender as the recipe states. Served it with crushed peanuts on top. Family loved it

    Good with a few changes...

    Jamie F from Phoenix, AZ

    I substituted a few ingredients in the recipe as we don't eat a lot of dairy products. I used olive oil instead of the butter to cook the vegetables. I also used a 14 ounce can of unsweetened coconut milk in place of the evaporated milk. I added 1/2 teaspoon of curry, as well as two chicken boullion cubes (I dissolved the cubes in 1/2 cup boiling water before I added it to the soup). Everyone enjoyed the soup & I will make it again!!!

    A Tasty Surprise

    NANCY CHAPMAN from Yorba Linda, CA

    I had never thought of mixing pumpkin and peanut butter together and made it into a soup before. It turned out to be a tasty surprise. I added a pinch of salt and curry to it just to spice it up a little. This will be one of the staples of my hearty, winter meal.

    margaret miller from elkhart, TX

    Amazed at how tasty this was! I used cooked pumpkin from post Halloween pumpkin, did not put through a blender, also used chuncky peanut butter. The extra texture added to the taste in my opinion. I'll definitely make this soup again. Delicious!!

    Fast and Tasty Pumpkin Peanut Soup

    Paula LEOTTA from MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA

    I put all ingredients except the pumpkin, chicken broth and Carnation Evaported 2% milk in the pot before leaving in the morning. When I came home late in the day all I had to do was open three cans (pumpkin, broth and Carnation Evaporated 2%Milk), turn the stove on and put some bread in the oven to warm. I used the full half cup of peanut butter. This fast and easy to prepare soup smelled wonderful while cooking and tasted delicious. For my family taste we will try it with a dash of hot sauce next time.

    Halloween Supper!

    JAN WILKINS from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    It is just my husband and I at home now, but I still like to do something special for Halloween. This was what I fixed last night for supper as we watched "spooky" movies on TV....He must have forgotten about Monday night football! I served Peanut Butter & Honey sandwiches, carrot sticks, raisin cookies, & applie cider...it was fun!

    Soooo Good!

    Mary Salvador from RIVERSIDE, CA

    This soup was easy to make and tasted so good. I added some salt and pepper and that with the combination of peanut butter and pumpkin were great. The soup is thick and creamy and makes a great meal by itself - -I just served a salad with it.

    Yummy Peanut Pumpkin Soup

    SAUNDRA ROMERO from ROSEBURG, OR

    This is one of the best peanut pumpkin soup recipes I've tried. After having the soup, I used the left overs on my halibut steak, and it was excellent. I'll make this soup again, for guests, and am sure it will be a winner. Thank you.

    PAMELA GILLEY from Indianapolis, IN

    Pumpkin soup has been one of our favorites for a long time, but the peanut butter in this recipe, combined with the pumkin and spices is terrific. We like it even better the second and third days...if it lasts that long.

    Unconventional Soup

    SUZANNE DYER from LOS ANGELES, CA

    I, like other cooks uses pumpkin for pies and peanut butter for sandwiches. The combination sounded strange, but was yummy. I added a little cream cheese instead of the condenced milk. It made it very creamy and I added chicken for more flavor. Very easy and yummy.

    Soup Therapy

    This pumpkin-peanut soup was a "life saver" for me and my father. Pumpkin has so many of the nutrients and vitamins we need for our special medical condition. The peanut makes the soup such a treat and a treat.

    Most people have never eaten pumpkin in anything but pie; and once they try this soup, they'll ask for seconds. It has a delicious pumpkin flavor with a hint of peanut and is a wonderful combination.

    Great Soup!

    SHARON DENZIEN from Schaumburg, IL

    I made this for the first time last weekend and it was delicious. I wasn't sure about the peanut butter with the pumpkin so added a small amount as a sample. My husband loved it so I added the peanut butter to the whole recipe. What a different flavor. Definitely will make again.

    My husband and I are retired Senior Citizens, and we often just have soup for dinner. This soup was unusual, extra flavorful and filling! Delicious with some crusty, warm bread on a cold, winter's night! We liked to use crunchy peanut butter, which gave it a nice texture.

    dave wilder from boone, NC

    I followed the recipe the first time and the onion, shallot,garlic taste was a little overwhelming. On the next batch, I drop those three ingredients and added 2T of pumpkin pie spice. It was like drinking warm pie from a glass.

    variation

    diane tollefson from westminster, CA

    As a pumpkin fan and a weight watcher, I eliminated the butter and used 99% fat free chicken broth. I followed the advice of other reviews and let it sit all day to blend the flavors. I think there was too much peanut butter in mine..it seemed to dominate the flavor. Next time less peanut butter. Very good.

    Try this at least once

    Susy Willard from Orlando, FL

    This is great. My husband wants me to take it to the big Thanksgiving dinner at his mother's house. It's easy to over do the peanut butter. I'd stick to the 1/4 cup.

    This soup goes wonderfully with a hearty crusty bread. It was a little strong to eat by itself.
