Creamy Pumpkin Soup- The No Time To Cook Book

This sound like a good pumpkin soup. It is from The No Time To Cook Book by Roslyn Beilly, 1969. The blurb: "If anyone had predicted before I discovered this recipe that I would rave about pumpkin soup, I'd have said he was crazy. But this soup is marvelous, and you should try it..."
