Easy Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Anyone who enjoys Thai Soup or Thai food, in general, is going to instantly fall in love with this easy Pumpkin Soup recipe. ?

Pumpkin can be a hard vegetable to know what to do with and this Thai Soup is the best way to use it up in the autumn. It’s a great warming vegetable and with the addition of chilli and coconut, you are going to be in heaven.

It is full of flavour, good natural ingredients and is a great healthy meal at any time of the day.  

I love to add some prawns on top if we are having it for dinner for that extra filling protein kick.

It?s a great Thai soup to take to work for an easy lunch on the go too.

On a side note, I never make soup without my favourite Soup pot...

This isn’t the biggest pot for soup but it is one of my favourites because I like the handles on each side. Particularly handy when making a heavy soup.

If you love Soup like me, why not take a look at my Brazillian Prawn Soup it is truly delicious.  

And, if you like it hot ?  check out Spicy Red Lentil Soup over on PepperScale.
