Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 slices bacon
1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 med. chopped onion
2 T. flour
1 t. curry powder
3 c. chicken broth
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 T. honey
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 t. fresh ground nutmeg
1/4 t. cayenne pepper


In a large saucepan, fry bacon until crisp.

Remove bacon pieces with a slotted spoon, set aside.

Add butter to drippings.

Add mushrooms and onions and cook until tender.

Stir in flour and currypowder until blended.

Gradually add broth.

Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened.

Add pumpkin, milk, honey, salt, pepper and nutmeg

Heat through.

Garnish with bacon.
