October 2023 Recipe: Thai Pumpkin Soup!
Embrace pumpkin season with open arms and savor this exquisite Thai Pumpkin Soup. It features everything you love about cozy comfort food in one bowl!
Bursting with proper Thai flavors, this gourmet pumpkin soup is surprisingly easy. It’s made with roasted winter squash, a bundle of aromatics, spices, and coconut milk. Blend them all together and you have a rich and indulgent soup that will keep you coming back for more.
The best part is it only gets better with time. Let the soup chill in the fridge overnight, then dig into the best leftovers you’ll ever have the next day.
This Thai Pumpkin Soup is naturally vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, and soy-free, making it a versatile and allergen-friendly choice for all!
Pro-tip: this recipe is on the spicy side but you can adjust the heat to your liking by adding less curry paste.
This Thai Pumpkin Soup gives you a gourmet Thai experience without any of the extra work. It’s creamy, easy to make, and layered with winter squash, warm and spicy aromatics, and bold spices and herbs. Quite possibly the most flavorful soup you’ll ever try!
