Thai Pumpkin Soup

Sitting in the office the other day I get an email with a bunch of Thai recipes from an office colleague. I decided to whip up this interesting soup that I scrolled through. I always have been a big fan of smooth soups so I am hoping this one will be just as good. The recipe is very simple and has some great flavors that I enjoy.

So I said what the heck, lets give it a whirl and see if it is worth serving to others. Follow below and let me hear what you think.

Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1 15 oz can coconut milk
  • 2 cups mango nectar
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup smooth or chunky peanut butter; your preference
  • 2 veggie bullion cubes
  • 1/2 an inch fresh ginger, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 green chilies, minced
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped

Method

  1. Add the pumpkin puree, coconut milk, mango nectar, and water to a large pot and bring to a low boil.
  2. Meanwhile, you can mince the ginger and green chilies (jalepenos are fine too) and add them to the pot.
  3. Chop the cilantro and green onions, and reserve for a garnish.
  4. Once the soup is hot, take out a small bowlful and stir in the peanut butter until it is completely incorporated. Add back to the pot.
  5. Repeat with another bowlful and incorporate the bullion cubes.
  6. Serve in bowls topped with the cilantro and green onions.
