This pumpkin soup is classic, comforting and served with a bit of a kick and a fragrant Thai twist!
Pumpkin soup is one of my all time favourites and this Thermomix Thai Pumpkin Soup is a delicious alternative to a classic Pumpkin Soup.
Over the years, I’ve developed quite a collection of Pumpkin Soup recipes and they’re all a bit alternative but all very delicious. What can I say? I’ve always liked to march to the beat of my own drum!
This soup is slightly spicy and has a really thick, almost creamy consistency even though it’s low fat, vegan and dairy free (at least it is if you skip the dollop of sour cream!)
I like to use a whole green chilli because I think spicy is nicey but if you’re not a fan, use half a chilli and take out the seeds for a much milder flavour.
I was a bit late to the pumpkin party, growing up in the UK, the pumpkin was just not a popular vegetable. I fell in love with pumpkin when I first came down under in 2002 and I like to think I’ve been making up for my pumpkin-free childhood ever since!
I think pumpkin is one of my favourite ingredients, I’ve got so many pumpkin recipes with everything from curries to cakes and pies to pizzas and pretty much everything inbetween but I still think a good bowl of pumpkin soup is hard to beat. Don’t you agree?
Are you a pumpkin fan too? Do you think spicy is nicey?
