Warm up to a comforting bowl of Thai Coconut Pumpkin Soup loaded with fresh garlic, curry powder and creamy coconut milk.
Now that soup season is in full swing, it’s time to grab your spoon and start enjoying quick and easy meal-in-a-bowl lunches and dinners. Pumpkin soup is high atop my list of winter favorites, and this year I’ve decided to add a Thai twist to the classic with this healthy recipe for coconut pumpkin soup made with plenty of fresh garlic. I’ve traded nutmeg for curry powder and heavy cream for coconut milk. The result is one seriously flavor-packed comfort food with subtle hints of Thai flavors.
A simple ingredient swap makes this soup vegetarian, but carnivores and vegetarians alike won’t want to miss out on the perfect dessert to complete your Thai feast: Homemade Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango. Now that is the ultimate takeout-fakeout meal, and you never even had to change out of your pajamas. Win, win andddd win.
