I followed the recipe to the letter, except for some little things at the end. After adding the evaporated milk, I added a pinch of brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. The sugar complimented the savory curry flavor, and the spice brings out much more of the pumpkin.

The Pumpkin and curry are surprisingly good together.

Oh wow!!! I used onion powder and garlic powder in place of the actual vegetable, and the soup turned out very well! Very, very tasty!

My husband loves this soup! I served it for Thanksgiving and everyone requested it for Christmas! Lost original and had to search the Internet for an Hour before I finally found the "one". You will not be dissapointed!

Great for company!

I tried this out last night for my Husband and myself. We loved it and we're going to serve it to company next weekend. It tastes like you worked on it for hours and it's easy to make and looks lovely in the soup dish with a dollop of sour cream and some snipped fresh chives on top. My friends will be happy with it since pumpkin is such a super food.

Soooo Good!!

My husband and I love Indian and Moroccan food, curries in particular, so I tried this one and even my picky kids liked it! It's great on a cold night with warm naan,(Indian flat bread). Really delicious!

scrumptious soup

this was the hit of the dinner party. I used a lite version of the Carnation Evap. milk and a no-salt broth...so, a few less calories and it was every bit as good as the higher calorie version.

Yummy soup
