This soup was very plain. I ended up adding a bunch of stuff to make it taste better. I added more nutmeg and ginger. I also added garlic and maple syrup. If you garnish with freshly chopped rosemary, thyme and parsley it really tops it off!



This was a good base recipe; it's one of the few that doesn't call for cream. The only changes I made were to use: 1)stock cubes (chicken and veggie stock with 3 cups of water - normally each cube takes 2 cups - kept that simmering on the stove while I prepped the other ingredients, so it reduced a little bit more); and 2) one large sweet potato cubed. I think the stock and sweet potato added a nice depth of flavour. Next time I make this I'll skip the skim milk and instead use a dollop of fat-free creme fraiche in each bowl. Also I'll roast the pumpkin first (think this might make for a nuttier flavor).



As mentioned, this was an excellent based soup and was not based on creme. That being said, once it was put through the blender, it was bland. This was very easily fixed with a LOT of spices. When I first saw a dash, I almost laughed. I ended up putting in about 3 tablespoons of nutmeg, 1 tablespoon of ginger, and 4 tablespoons of cinnamon. I also used a sweet potato as suggested. Finally, to give a little nuttier flavor. I added about 1/4 cup of hazelnut fat free cream. This definitely kicked it up. All told it was a lot of fun to work with a girlfriend and figure out what to add to the soup.
