My husband saw the original recipe in a cookbook and begged me to make it. I was wary at first, I'd only had pumpkin that was sweet. Well, this savory soup hooked me. The original recipe was vegetarian, with vegetable stock and no bacon. We added the bacon and cayenne pepper. My 5 year old son regularly eats 3 bowls of this delicious soup.
