heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons
I've tried already for 2days 4 different recipies of Pumpkin soup. 2 recommended onion, carrot, celery, garlic, or the milk/evaporated milk and onion. Since i'm not so much a fan of onion in sweet soup, others didn't appeal to me, but this one -my last try- simply amazed me. If you want to have sweet pumpkin taste itself, but sweet and creamy, you will love this one. I'm so glad that I finally found one.
I love soups made with winter squash/pumpkin, but what constitutes a "small sugar pumpkin?" It would be very helpful to have a measurement of the actual amount of the cooked pumpkin. Even the weight of the pumpkin would be helpful.
I used canned pumpkins instead. It was much easier and still very tasty! This soup will accompany our Thanksgiving dinner this year. Thanks for the delicious and easy recipe!
Very good soup. I used canned pumpkin to save time AND I also thought it needed a little extra flavor so I added some orange juice. Turned out fantastic! My dad couldn't get enough.
This soup was excellent and easy to make for an unexperienced cook. The only thing I added was a little fresh ground pepper on top before serving. One thing that I think is helpful to know is that one blender full of pumpkin mixed with the 3 cups of chicken stock was the right amount for great tasting creamy soup.
It's important to note that the recipe calls for SUGAR PUMPKIN, which is different from the generic, Jack O' Lantern pumpkins that supermarkets have for display. Ask the manager of the market or go to a local one to find Sugar/Sugar Pie Pumpkin.
I enjoyed the process of making this soup. It was a lot of fun. However, it was a tad bland but I doubled the nutmeg and sage and instead of putting a spoonful of sour cream in each bowl, I used 3/4 of a 8oz sour cream tub and just mixed it right in to all of th soup.
That kicked it up just right!
I always make pumpkin soup with garlic and onion, but tried it with sage and nutmeg, as well as cream, this time. I couldn't really taste the spices in my soup, but the cream was a great addition. I also mixed in a dash of cayenne pepper and sprinkled fresh chopped parsley and fresh ground pepper on top. A big hit. No one thought it was bland, but you can always add more salt if need be. I served it in a cooked hollowed pumpkin shell and the presentation was great. I have heard (never tried) that curry is good in pumpkin soup also.
