Doubled the recipe for a party. Super simple and easy to make, but quite good. See full review at

I am alone and only made half of this. WONDERFUL. I don't care for pumpkin soup that is like drinking the pie batter and the thought of chicken broth made my tummy roll. so this was perfect. if you have ever used fresh pumpin in cooking this is close to that. make sure the onion is cooked but not burned. mine got a bit brown but I didn't notice any taste change from it. I used 1% milk and sea salt. I did use warm water and put the maple syrup into that so the cold syurp would come clean off the spoon,[maple syrup has to be kept in the frige] this was so good I am making the whole volumn next time. patei .
