Review This Recipe
Couldn't Believe It!
This was incredible! We've been looking for recipes that use pumpkin and came across this one. I thought, sounds horrible, but what the heck... how bad could it be? Needless to say it was creamy and hearty and better than I could have imagined! You have got to try it!
the best soup
i think that this a warm and satifing soup .
This soup is very good & simple to make. I made an adjustment by using Carnation Low Fat Evaporated milk instead of the coffee creamer because of all of its additives and sugar. The brown sugar sweetened it adequately for me. I also added some Gram Masala and curray for a slightly spiced taste. I'll make it often
Sounds good, especially since its very cold outside.
