My Pumpkin Soup Needs Help!

Monday, March 24, 2014

I tried a recipe for pumpkin soup today that was recommended by Dr. Oz. It wasn't very good, and I'm looking for ideas on how to modify the rest of it... it's either that or throw it out.

The recipe called for pumpkin, carrots, green apple, onion and garlic tossed in olive oil, cumin, coriander and turmeric, and roasted for 30 minutes. The cooked vegetables went in a blender with vegetable broth and coconut milk, pureed until smooth and then heated.

It tasted really blah. I added salt and pepper... no better. I looked up some other recipes, and they called for cinnamon and nutmeg... haven't tried them yet.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Gail emoticon

    Sorry I am late with this. If you make it again, add some Pumpkin Spice. We use that when we make French Toast. You don't need much, but it adds good flavor. emoticon

    Sorry, I am not a particularly good cook. Do you think it will be better as a leftover? A lot of soups are better after a day or two and the ingredients have a chance to mingle and get to know each other, so to speak.
Not much help but I tried.
Hugs, Audra

    Given the ingredients so far, I would try a good quality curry powder, such as Vindalu or Rogan Josh. (The one time I tried a pumpkin soup was a disaster, I was trying to recreate a wonderful pumpkin crab soup that a chef had created for a soup kitchen fundraiser ... my recreation was SO awful and a waste of good crab)

    I usually add nutmeg to my made creamy by vegetables soups. Given that you used Indian spicing why not continue and add some cinnamon or allspice?

    Afraid not, I'm not a lover of pumpkin so have no idea how to adjust the taste emoticon
