  1. I never thoght of using pumpkin pie spice in a soup, but it totally makes sense, given the use of cinnamon and cloves in savory Indian dishes. So creative! I can’t wait to try this recipe.

    • The funny thing is, it was borne of necessity–we we’re at a vacation rental over thanksgiving and they we’re slim on spices. So I turned to the spice mix we’d used for the pumpkin pie and thought the same thing you did … Warm spices, these will all work. And they did :-). Enjoy!

      • Funny! It looks like scarcity always promotes creativity. I made this soup last night. I am at my mother-in-law’s, she didn’t have thyme, so I used oregano and lemmon pepper. She also didn’t have pumpkin pie spice, so I used one teaspoon of cinnamon and one of nutmeg. Smoked paprika instead of chipotle.(love the color!) and 2 cups of yams plus 3 cups of squash. It still ended up fabulous. Can’t wait to try it with thyme! Many thanks for your feedback!
