This soup was awesome!!  I cant eat veggie bullion or broth, so i used water and extra seasoning.  i was somewhat skeptical of pumpkin and noodles, so i used rice noodles, a lighter flavor, and it was super good!  oh no!  now that i look at the recipe, i forgot the cinnamon!! i even thought, hmm, this would be good with some cinnamon.. no i'll follow the recipe.  ohwell.  maybe next time.



DANG that's some GOOOD soup!

I was forced to alter your recipe a little.  I came home and said "oh dear, I have no pumpkin, whatever shall I do?" So I used yellow squash instead.  Did the same thing, covered it with cinnamon and tossed it in the oven.  20 min
I used 8 cups of water and 2 boullion cubes.  And I chopped up a chunk of fresh ginger and tossed it in.  Then I followed your directions, except I think i misread and put the cayenne pepper in right at the beginning.  I didn't have carrots (FH can't eat them anyway) so i used green onion, broccoli, and red and green peppers.  Let it boil and tossed in some cut up angel hair pasta.  The seasoning is to DIE for (i didn't have jalapeno, so i didn't get to use that either)  The cayenne pepper does the trick here, it was very spicey and extremely yummy!  Thank you so much for posting this soup!!
