This soup is not only easy to make, but incredibly good! I didn't have whipping cream - just used what I had on hand - skim milk. Flavor was still great and felt better because it was less fattening.

Based on other reviews and personal preferences I modified this recipe as follows: 6 cups reduced salt chicken stock 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 4 cups pumpkin puree 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley 1 cup chopped onion 1 chopped red pepper 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme 2 clove garlic, minced 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream ½ tsp fresh ground pepper Dash nutmeg I pureed the peppers and onion with a bit of stock prior to cooking. I added the parsley and nutmeg prior to simmering for the last 30 minutes. This soup was so delicious that even the biggest skeptics helped themselves to more. I have made it twice and served it to all ages 2yrs to 85 yrs and everyone LOVED it! So yummy even for people who do not like the taste of pumpkin.

This was great! A bit of nutmeg really sets the flavors off, but do it at the end and just add small amounts at a time or else it will overpower the soup. I would also recommend adding an extra clove garlic as it really brings out a bit more flavor. Serve this with a good quality french bread stick (should be very hard on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside).
