“My mother has served this potage since I can remember and everybody raves about it! The only thing is that you may have blistered hands after cutting the fresh pumpkin, so you may want to have some gloves available. Have fun!”

This soup was very good, although very labor intensive. To cut down on the work involved with the raw pumpkin, I cut it into pieces and baked it as directed in the recipe "Cooked Pumpkin" from this website. It was then very easy to remove the skin and dice the pumpkin. I also only added 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. The soup was very creamy and smooth, even with the skim milk that I used.



This was lovely! I loved the spiciness of the cayenne with the pumpkin and nutmeg. I did make this recipe vegan by substituting vegetable stock for chicken broth and soy milk for the milk. I found I also only had to use 2 cups soy milk instead of the 4 1/2 cups of milk the recipe called for. I followed another reviewers suggestion and pre-cooked the pumpkin. Worked like a charm. I will definitely make this again!

Was very good, but perhaps a bit too spicy. I will make it again with less cayenne next time.
