sugar pumpkin, seeded and cubed
chicken stock, or as needed
I used plain canned pumpkin I had leftover from turkey day. I didn't have heavy cream so I just added sour cream at the end. Also since I like thing a little spicy I just added a dash of red pepper flakes. It was quite good. I would make it again
This may be an excellent recipe. It looks very good. But I will never make it because I do not know what a medium onion looks like or what a medium sugar pumpkin looks like. Recipes may refer to medium, but should then state a quantity of the item. One person's medium may be another's small or large - who knows?
On its own, a bit bland, but one heck of a base for a hearty winter soup: I added butter, curry powder, sesame and wasabi oil to the saute; put the herbs in at the bottom of the slow cooker, with cinnampon sticks at the sides and bay leaves layered in; kicked up the bay a bit, and set it for 12 hours on low. When done, used a bit of the broth to saute some nice langoustines (any subtle-flavored fish would have done), added langs to bottom of serving bowl, poured soup over, drizzled with heavy cream. A smash hit at our house.
I had to use dried herbs, I live up north so fresh herbs are hard to get. I served this to people at work, they loved it!
I found the soup a little bland, maybe if I spice it up with some ginger and cayenne pepper... or add some brown sugar and nutmeg... it is a good base, but it needs something else. In any case, thank you for sharing.
I like it because it's simple. I made pumpkin soup every year at Halloween and the kids loved it before going Trick/Treat. If you follow any recipe for carrot or squash soup it's very similar. I like to add celery and POTATOES to make it thicker. More spices like pumpkin pie mix and curry, chili powder and whatever herbs I like. sometimes I leave the soup chunky with big pieces of pumpkin. I use lots of onions and butter.
The Recipe started a little bland, but after I added a little V8 Juice it balanced well with some pasta. Was well liked by non soup eaters, will definitely make again!
A little bland so I added some fresh pressed garlic and cooked for six hours.
