Really amazing! Sauteed onion & extra garlic ahead of time, then put all but the cream in a microwavable bowl since I wouldn't be home for supper. Used white pepper, dried thyme. Instructions were: Simply heat, add cream, & eat. (*sigh* kids add too many crackers - but loved it) Easy for my young daughter to serve up for the family. I personally love pumpkin, & was looking forward to tasting a new pumpkin soup. However, when I finally had some of this soup, I was surprised to find that I couldn't taste any of the pumpkin. That was an added blessing since hubs does NOT like pumpkin. HE LIKED THIS! (he liked our modified version of Stuffed Shells 2 from this site better the next night - it turned into a modified lasagna-lite, but who is going to make anything as complex as lasagna every nite???). Served this soup w/Pear & Blue Cheese Salad from this site, which hubs utterly loved (adding a touch of sugar to the dressing), & Italian Wheat Rolls (also from this site - using 70-75% whole wheat rather than as directed). This made a really lovely fall meal which he actually enjoyed (perhaps especially because of the salad & rolls, but he liked the soup fine). That little menu is going into our fall rotation as of now. Thanks so much Allrecipes & Lea, for yet another success story in our kitchen! Oh, & later, when I wanted a snack in the evening, I finished off this soup! Yummmm.....!!!!!! Next time, might try: 6 tsp. chicken bouillon crystals, 2'sh C water, 4'sh C soy milk.
