This is such a unique pumpkin soup recipe because of the added ingredients. Usually, pumpkin soup is basically just pureed pumpkin with spices but the beans and corn add some texture and flavor! This is actually more of a pumpkin stew without any meat but with all of the extra ingredients!

This soup recipe looks really yummy! I was surprised to see pumpkin puree as ingredient in this recipe but i bet it gives really great taste and a nice thick and creamy texture too! This would be a very tasty fall o winter recipe, especially for Thanksgiving or any special holiday dinner! Can't wait to try this one!

What kind of cream are you suppose to use? I am thinking half and half but I just want to be sure.

Yes, I would think the recipe was written to be made with half and half, but you could really substitute any cream or even milk or non dairy such as coconut milk/cream or almond milk. The heavier the cream you use, the creamier the soup will be, but really you could adapt this recipe in many ways to suit any diet!
