A Thai Inspired Pumpkin Soup Recipe
The Thai flavours in this pumpkin soup recipe take it to a WHOLE new level! Don't get me wrong, I love my good old classic roast pumpkin soup recipe so much... but this is so yummy for a change!
To get a super flavour-packed Thai soup, we used:
- red curry paste
- lime juice
- coconut cream (or coconut milk)
- ... and of course, pumpkin and liquid vegetable stock!
Store-bought vs Homemade Red Curry Paste
I used a store-bought red curry paste in this recipe, but you can absolutely make your own if you prefer. Here's a yummy homemade red curry paste recipe.
Note: I used the Ayam brand of red curry paste this time, but I've tried quite a few different brands in the past and they've all been great!
Dairy-Free Thai pumpkin Soup Recipe
Because this soup is made with coconut cream (to give it a beautiful Thai flavour), it's also dairy-free!!! Yay!
If you'd prefer to use everyday cream, then you absolutely can - but the coconut cream gives it such a beautiful flavour and works really well with the lime juice, ginger, garlic and red curry paste.
