Vegged-out Pumpkin & Black Bean Soup
This is the most delicious soup we've enjoyed in a long time. It has become a favorite dish. Also it is very attractive. I don't always ahve vegetable broth around so it can be made with chicken broth. Be sure to stock up on Libby's pumpkin because super markets treat it as a seasonal product.
This Is A "Keeper!"
Had to try it, out of curiosity! It's excellent! It's a thicker, hearty soup with lots of flavor, very easy to make, very tasty & very pretty! My husband felt it was a little on the sweet side - we just added a little extra cayenne pepper to counterbalance that & it was fantastic! I'd definitely make this again!
Tasty and Healthy
I made this soup for lunch one day this week. My husband liked it a lot, he thought there was some kind of meat in it because it was so thick and hearty.
We really enjoyed it.
Perfect for a cold day
It's simple: it's delicious and easy to make. I can see making this over and over.
Better than you might think!
Excellent soup. Very surprising. As others said, you can't taste the pumpkin - it only adds body to the soup. It needed that "something" so I added a heap. Tbsp of br sugar and a couple dashes of chili pwdr. Definitely making this again.
This recipe was pretty good, but I was disappointed because I couldn't taste the pumpkin AT ALL. It is still a tasty, hardy veggie soup. I ended up adding a second can of pumpkin, a can of stout instead of water, a dash of cinnamon, brown sugar, hot sauce, and black pepper. Came out great, but again, could barely taste pumpkin.
Very tasty soup
This was a hit at our house. The only change I made was using RO*TEL Tomatoes and Green Chilies instead of the diced tomatoes and cayenne pepper.
I tried this tonight, but I added browned hamburger and crushed red pepper, then sprinkled Parmesan on top w/onions. Will definitely make this again.
Vegged out Pumpkin and Black Bean soup
I made this recipe and thought it was very good. I even thought that next time I will add some chili powder to it. We like a little more zing so I did add more cayenne Pepper then it called for. This soup hit the spot.
Made it as-is except for the addition of the cayenne because I didn't have any. I was a bit skeptical but it was odd enough to try and it was really good. I was afraid of that pumpkin taste but you couldn't taste it; the flavors really blended well. Loved the addition of the onion pieces on top, served it with cornbread and it was very filling and super easy to make.
GREAT PUMPKIN SOUP!
I just made this soup; it is really excellent!! I plan on making it often as it is low in points on Weight Watchers (2 for 1 cup, 5 for 2 cups). I can't really say enough about how good it is. It's filling and very delicious. The flavors of all ingredients mix...you don't really taste all pumpkin, give it a try!!!!!!!!!!Thanks Nestle
This soup was wonderful,I love the ease to prepare. I like my soup a little thicker so I mashed one can of beans and added it to the soup. It just gives it more body.
Delish and Nutrish
Very healthy as long as you don't have allergies
so so good!
I was very surprised by the great blend of flavors. Did use chicken instead of vegetable broth. Added hot sauce and black pepper as I like a little more spice.
Skip the black beans, used pinto beans instead
This is a dynamite soup, and highly-recommended.
I don't care for black beans, but you might like them. If not, use pinto beans, which are excellent!
Thanks for sharing the recipe.

veged-ot Pumkin an Black bean soup
We are having very cold weather here and this soup hit the spot. I did not have the pumpkin, but did have sweet potato so I used that. It was very good and heated up the next day even better.
