HOW TO MAKE SPICY THAI PUMPKIN SOUP

  1. Make the flavour base: Sauté the onions in a bit of coconut oil. Then add the garlic, ginger, and curry paste.

  2. Add the pumpkin & liquids: Stir in the pumpkin puree, coconut milk, and broth and simmer.

  3. Blend: Use an immersion or a traditional blender to puree the soup until smooth.

  4. Add lime, season, & garnish: Stir in your lime juice. Taste, then season with salt and pepper, and garnish if desired.

 

Important: This soup has a silky texture because all of the ingredients get blended together until smooth. I prefer to use an immersion blender to puree the soup, but you can use a regular/traditional blender instead. Be sure to use these two safety precautions when using a traditional blender to blend hot liquids:

  1. Blend the hot liquid in batches and only fill the blender up until it is halfway full. Any more than that can cause a serious accident.

  2. Before you start blending, remove the center insert in the lid of your blender. Then, place your hand over top the lid with a dish towel and keep most of the hole covered. This is done to allow the hot steam to escape and prevent any splashes while the blender is running.
