Vibrant orange and velvety smooth, this intensely flavoured soup is an absolute treat. The sharp flavour of the blue cheese sets off the sweet taste of the soup perfectly.
• Don't throw out the pumpkin seeds: wash carefully, toast in a lightly oiled frying pan and sprinkle over a salad.
• The cream cheese can be either full-cream or reduced-fat. For extra flavour, use one that is flavoured with herbs.
Altered ingredient amounts. I added bacon and garlic to give it a boost. Delicious - 17 Mar 2009
Delicious and extremely easy, the cream cheese was a great idea as I added light Phili to keep the kilos off. I also added bacon and garlic to give it a boost the second time round. - 17 Mar 2009
We love pumpkin soups, and this one is definitely our favourite this season. The kids aren't too fond of blue cheese, but that's easily fixed. Barely need to wash the soup bowls afterwards. - 14 Apr 2013
