    Great soup. I used vegetable broth and instead of the milk, I used light coconut milk:) We also like a soup that is a bit thicker and therefore omitted the water! Fast, easy, and nutritious!!! - 10/2/11

    I added 1/2 can of white kidney beans (drained and rinsed) to the soup when simmering. Pureed the entire pot, which disguised the beans and upped the fibre and protein! - 1/4/10

    I like the sound of curried pumkin soup. We in Australia can't get canned pumkin, instead we use fresh mashed pumkin. I use fat free evaporated milk as well to give it that creamy texture. Thanks for the curried idea, will try this out. - 1/26/08

  • Loved it! Used lite coconut milk also. Would not recommend using low sodium broth, because I ended up adding salt to it for flavor. Only did 1T of curry but added 1 T of ground ginger. - 1/3/12

  • I'd like to recommend using College Inn's Thai Coconut Curry chicken stock. It's "bite" is mild, but it adds a LOT of flavor to the pumpkin soup. - 1/25/11

  • Made it tonite, but w/ less curry powder(2 Tb is ALOT!). Instead of eating crackers or bread w/ it, I added some leftover brown rice. Very satisfying! - 11/5/08

  • It is easy and delicious. It is low caloriess, riche in fiber and it tastes incredible. An advice at the end use the blender machine, the soup become so smooth and foamy! - 9/27/07
