Thai Pumpkin, Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup

Looking for a Thai Pumpkin, Sweet Potato and Carrot soup that is absolutely jam-packed with flavour? Look no further than this delicious soup!

With the weather getting a little cooler now, I am starting to get back into soup making. There’s nothing better than a warm bowl of soup on a cold day! One of my all-time favourite soups is pumpkin soup… it’s such a classic! And this Thai Pumpkin, Sweet Potato and Carrot soup is a nice way to change up the good old favourite!

Thai Pumpkin, Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup

Anyway, I absolutely love soup. I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m a massive vegetable fan and soup is like getting to eat a gazzilion vegetables in one go! I often say to my husband that I could happily eat just a huge plate of vegetables for dinner… he then looks at me like ‘Who is this strange person? How did I marry such a weirdo?’. So soup is a nice compromise because you still get all the vegetables but it’s super tasty at the same time!

I love that this soup is jam-packed with vegetables but is also bursting with so many yummy flavours and spices. It’s certainly not a boring soup. Whatever you do, make sure you eat it with a nice, crusty roll or slice of bread so that you can wipe the bowl and get all the yummy last bits into your tummy! We had ours with homemade garlic bread… mmmmmmm!

And if you like your pumpkin soup extra creamy then add some coconut cream at the very end.

What’s your favourite type of soup?

    That looks so good!
    I just wrote about how I want to go meat free at least once per fortnight. Might have to add this recipe to my meal plan next fortnight!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      I’m really not a huge meat eater at all. I could easily go a few days without any meat… not sure my hubby would be too happy though!

  2. This is one of my favourite soups! I made it a few years ago and it has been a regular feature through winters since. I usually add just a little bit of coconut milk and chopped coriander prior to serving.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh it really is so yum! I didn’t add coconut milk this time, but I think I might next time! xx

  3. That looks divine. I love that it is naturally gluten free too – will definitely try this out as the weather cools.

      Oooh that’s a bonus! πŸ™‚

  4. I love pumpkin soup too and Pea and Ham.

  6. Can I tell you a secret? I’m terrified of cooking, I get stressed out just thinking about it. But this recipe looked so yummy…. Am I a truly appalling mummy that my first thought was: “ooohhhh I must send that recipe to my hubby”, who (fortunately) is a wonderful cook.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Haha that’s great! Well you only need one good cook in the house! πŸ™‚

  7. Lauren says:

    Yum! Minestrone or home made french onion soup with crusty bread topped with melted cheese is my favourite.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh yum! I love minestrone but have never made my own French Onion soup before! Mmmm

  8. Nathan says:

    Yum! I do love a good pumpkin soup. And pumpkin pie… mmmm… pie….. As Kirsty said, this being gluten free is great – I’m adding it to my GF pinterest board!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oooh yes you can’t go past pie!

    Mmmm. Looks yummy. Love soup weather. My favourite is my mother’s cream of chicken.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh yummo! That sounds divine!

  11. My favourite soup is probably potato leek and bacon, but I have never made it. I’ve only opened cans and poured them into pans. I’d love to make soup but I am THAT lazy! I wish the weather would cool down here and become soup weather! -Aroha (for #teamIBOT)

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Haha love it! Ill send you some coldness if you send me some heat!

  12. This looks so good. I make a very similar soup called spicy sweet potato bisque but will try this variation when it finally cools down properly here. Xx

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Mmm that sounds lovely!

  13. Gosh Lauren that new photo of you is DIVINE! And I LOVE me some pumk soup, I try to add some coconut milk and spice but then kids won’t eat it anyhow so I might try yours next!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

  14. Kreete says:
