Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Anyone who enjoys Thai food is going to instantly fall in love with this Pumpkin Coconut Soup.  It is full of flavor, good natural ingredients and is a great healthy meal at any time of the day.  I love to add some prawns on top if having it for dinner.  It’s a great soup to take to work for an easy lunch on the go too.

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 from my friends over at Pepper Scale.
