Spicy Thai Pumpkin Soup

IMG_5062 (Large)

I have a really easy and super quick soup recipe for you today.  When I say easy I’m not lying. This soup only have 5 delicious ingredients. I used one jar of my homemade pumpkin puree (recipe and how-to is coming in a few days, I realize I did this backwards but really wanted to share this soup recipe) and one can of canned pumpkin. 

This soup was perfectly spiced for a  cold fall evening. The curry flavor was mild but just enough so you could pick up on the flavor.  I added the red pepper flakes because I felt like the soup needed a little something. I loved the little hint of spice it brought to the party.

    I have to make this – I’ve been on a Thai Pumpkin Curry kick recently… I think I’m single-handedly keeping the local takeout place in biz!

    Sounds so tasty! I’m hosting a weekly blog carnival specifically for soups, stocks and chowders, every Sunday. I would love it if you would come over and post this recipe. Here’s a link with more info.
    I hope to see you there!

    OK, so the same day I saw this, yesterday, I made a version of it that was so grotesque, I may never eat squash again! hahahaha Not your fault–I didn’t follow your recipe at all, just took off on my own with the ingredients and used my own measurements since I was scaling it down to serve one (I had about a cup of mashed kabocha squash I wanted to use). I used way too much curry powder and salt and thought I’d try to balance it with some sweetener. It only neede a pinch of sugar but I added a pack of stevia, with is like a million times sweeter than sugar and I had the most disgustingly sweet hot curry flavored soup ever!! Hopefully second time’s a charm b/c I really like the idea of this. Maybe if I followed the recipe? haha

    This sounds fantastic! Have you ever froze leftovers? Just curious if it holds up in the freezer if needed. Looking forward to trying this recipe soon!

      Hi Charlotte,

      I haven’t frozen the leftovers. My only concern is that it might separate. Hope you like it!

    I make a pumpkin soup every fall, it’s tradition. It’s totally different from your recipe (how different can it be if its pumpkin soup right?). You have now given me a reason to make pumpking soup twice this fall, because I am totally trying this recipe.
