Yes, this makes a very rich, creamy soup. It was quite filling and, with croutons and some bread, was a very satisfying meal.
I also used Half and Half to lower the fat content and found it quite suitable. In fact, the pumpkin puree is so smooth and rich, I feel even a low fat 2% milk or even water would suffice. I have yet to experiment!
I found it difficult to cut and cube the sweet pumpkin raw, so I seeded it and cut it in half, drizzled it with oil and baked it in the oven with the other vegetables with the skin on. After 40 minutes or so the skin just fell off and I could continue baking the pumpkin until nice and soft.
I am also going to try adding a few cloves of garlic to the roasted vegetables to give it some added zing next time!
One last word of caution...watch the nutmeg. It gives the soup a real nice flavor, but too much can be overpowering.
I really recommend giving this soup a try...it is rich and flavor-some and quite easy to prepare.
