My Mom and sister asked me to try to replicate the pumpkin soup they enjoyed from Au Bon Pain, and Halloween night seemed like a good time to try. I used this recipe, and substituted half and half for the heavy cream. The result was still a rich and flavorful soup, with a smooth texture.

We did note that the tomato overpowered the pumpkin, and next time I would use half the recommended amount of stewed tomatoes. I would also put the tomatoes in the food processor before adding them into the pot to avoid having to puree the soup later. Overall though this is a good recipe, and pumpkin soup may become the new Halloween tradition.

  1. Just wondering what size cans of tomatoes and pumpkin you used? The recipe doesnt say.

  2. Good question – I assumed they meant the 14-16 oz. size can of pumpkin and tomatoes.
